My friend got a felony in 1960 and still cannot legally own a gun.
The truth of the matter is not all felons are created equally. Some felons were convicted of violent crimes and some don’t have a violent bone in their bodies. Some of the convictions occured more than 10, 20, or even 30 years ago. Yet in most states they are treated the same and none are permitted to own modern firearms.
The Oklahoma City police arrested a felon last weekend at a gun show because he was attempting to sell a gun. The officers uncovered his record as a convicted felon while completing a background check. KOCO.com has the report.
