Its a federal issue

Quote
The Gun Control Act (GCA), codified at 18 U.S.C. 922(g), makes it unlawful for certain categories of persons to ship, transport, receive, or possess firearms or ammunition, to include any person:

convicted in any court of a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year;

It's also by state, just like voting rights for felons.

I think you can retain rights for felonies if they are certain white collar, financial crimes.
That depends on the state. Blue states, especially those with more oppressive gun control laws, tend to have a longer list of convictions which will preclude you from firearm possession.
While yes, but many blue states also have enacted laws that reduce felony convictions to misdemeanors after a sentence is completed. The reasoning is that some believe a felony conviction will prevent the individual from getting a job, etc. You don't see this in red states.

As an example, in California almost all felony convictions (except the most haneous) can be reduced to a misdemeanor after the individual completes all jail/prison time, probation, fines, etc. Once this conversion occurs the individual is no longer a convicted felon and can possess firearms.

I guess it depends on how much punishment do we require of a convicted person.
For me is is not black and white. To me the crime, the intent at time of crime and how many years have lapsed since the crime.

I know a young man who got convicted of having sex with a minor
36 months younger than him I think. He was 18. The young lady would sneak out and meet him in a park. There was no weapon, No violence, just two kids.

Her mother read her diary and found out. Thus charges.

He got a year at Forks, and five years monitoring.  28 years later he has married
raised  a son ,works everyday, does volunteer community work with homeless in his off time.



Yet no rights.

I think he has paid his dues.

Has he petitioned to get his rights reinstated?


No

Never felt he had the extra money to spend on it. He now is legally Blind so no need for firearm rights any more.
