A family member is being sentenced to 5 years State Prison

A family member is being sentenced to 5 years State Prison at 50%. California, from I understand, is a day for a day. So, 50% of this must be served. The lawyer will recommend "Fire Camp". Which if granted carries 2 days for every day served. Could someone advise how this works and how much time if all goes well with "Fire Camp" could my family member actually end up serving? If you could provide a calculation in math example it would be appreciated.

I have heard that anyone with a felony conviction is

I have heard that anyone with a felony conviction is prohibited from owning a firearm. My question is if that includes non-violent, blue collar felony convictions, specifically a conviction for violation of federal tax law. If the felony prohibition isall-inclusive, is there a circumstance that would allow the person with the felony conviction to petition the court or appear before a judge to request that their right to own a firearm be reinstated? My brother received a three year sentence for income taxviolations. It was his first conviction for ANY offense and does not have any other blemish on his record.
