Under federal law, are all people who are convicted of murder legally prohibited from possessing firearms?
Federal law typically prohibits people who have been convicted of a felony from possessing firearms. However, this is not the case if their civil rights are restored by the requisite government entities. As of 2002, 15 states automatically restored the firearm rights of convicts upon their release from prison or completion of parole.
