Question
I was convicted of a felony( agrivated battery level eight person felony)a little over ten years ago. I haven't been convicted of any charges since then, what wrights do I have when it comes to owning, buying, and hunting with a gun

Answer
As a convicted felon with a charge of "agrivated {sic) battery" (which commonly means use of a deadly weapon, battery in which serious bodily injury occurs, or battery against a child or police officer), Mitch, you have no "wrights" {sic) in respect to firearms possession much less ownership.

In short, you are a Prohibited Person , #1, and, #2, your inquiry has nothing to do with Second Amendment issues, which is what this topic is about!

I can answer questions about Handguns, Rifles, Ammunition, the Firearms Industry, the "gunzine game," practical accessories for self-defense (CCW) handguns; rumor control on firearms myths, errata on the "gunshop grapevine."

I am NOT an Attorney, and nothing I provide here should be relied upon as legal advice. Therefore, please do NOT make inquiries about Criminal Justice issues... this is the Second Amendment topic.

Nor do I do "Private Consultations." Want to made it "private," retain an attorney.
