A friend of a friend wants to go hunting. He has a class 3 felony (2nd degree burglary) in Texas (he's in AZ now). According to federal law, he's inelligable, right? Ineligible Persons The following classes of people are ineligible to possess, receive, ship, or transport firearms or ammunition: Those convicted of crimes punishable by imprisonment for over one year, except state misdemeanors punishable by two years or less. Fugitives from justice. Unlawful users of certain depressant, narcotic, or stimulant drugs. Those adjudicated as mental defectives or incompetents or those committed to any mental institution. Illegal aliens. Citizens who have renounced their citizenship. Those persons dishonorably discharged from the Armed Forces. Persons less than 18 years of age for the purchase of a shotgun or rifle. Persons less than 21 years of age for the purchase of a firearm that is other than a shotgun or rifle. Persons subject to a court order that restrains such persons from harassing, stalking, or threatening an intimate partner. Persons convicted in any court of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence. He only received parole, and that was over a while ago, but it looks like from the wording that if the crime is punishable by over one year (his is up to 3.5 years) in prison, he's ineligible, right? He's tried calling police, the ATF, and the FBI, and the most he's gotten is "Call a lawyer". I told him i didn't think it was a good idea for him to go.
