What charge would a felon face if they have ammunition in their possession.
HelloIt is under Federal law
18 USC 921 (a)(17)(B)&(C).
And thanks for your patience while I located that reference
And as you know, Federal law supersedes state law, unless the state law is more stringent
I have another question say a felon has a firearm that has a broken firing pin and the gun cannot fire a bullet. would that still make them a prohibited possessor.
I suggest if it was manufactured before 1898 then yes because it would be considered and antique firearm
But if after that date, even though the pin is broken it would still be considered a Firearm that is prohibited by a felon
correct me if I'm wrong firearm is a object that can lunch a projectile bye mod of explosion.
Yes. Correct. But the law says that a Felon cannot possess a gun that was manufactured after 1898. They can have an antique but not anything later than that. I suggest the thinking on that is because a firing pin can be removed and replaced at the ready.
Remember, I dont make these laws.
