I've got a friend that was arrested yesterday and is currently out on bail. If he winds up getting convicted it will most likely be a felony conviction. The details are kindly ugly, nothing voilent, just not a pretty situation.

Since I've got guns everywhere what are the legal implications of him coming over to visit? I'm assuming that if convicted he couldn't own a gun, but can he still shoot any of mine when we go to the range? Can he even be around guns?

And yes, this is really a friend, not me.

A convicted felon can be around guns (just ask G. Gordon Liddy).

It would be illegal for him to even hold or handle a gun as it would constitute posession.

Not to mention you can be charged too if you know he's a felon *after his conviction* and give him access to any gun.

IIRC, even being in posession of a single round of ammo is verbooten.

Unless it is an antique, air gun, paintball gun or blackpowder frontstuffed

OUCH! I didn't know the depth of the law.

Now for the REALLY bad news, the "friend" is my brother.
