Jacustomer,

Under Federal Law, according to 18 USC 922 (g):

"(g) It shall be unlawful for any person—

(1) who has been convicted in any court of, a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year . . .

to ship or transport in interstate or foreign commerce, or possess in or affecting commerce, any firearm or ammunition; or to receive any firearm or ammunition which has been shipped or transported in interstate or foreign commerce. "

This looks like a no to me. A convicted felon can have nothing to do with guns.
