    if hes a "former" felon does that mean he has been pardoned??? Once convicted of a felony, you lose some rights forever unless its overturned or pardoned. If you cant obey the rules you cant share the winnings...

    I know it's many years late but I am just now seeing this and the answer is yes as a convicted felon in the state of Oklahoma you can possess a muzzleloader. The Oklahoma firearms act of 1971 quite clearly States that an antique firearm shall not be construed as a firearm for the definition purposes... In accordance with federal law. I myself am a convicted felon and whoever said a convicted felon cannot possess a pellet good you are sadly wrong and naive. I have pellet guns made by Glock, Winchester, Ruger and Sig Sauer, from .177-22 cal. I also own a couple Umarex t4e .43cal pistols, S&W, Walther, Glock. Be educated not just opinionated(Bottom of screenshot).

    * Since conviction I went and got a degree minoring in criminology majoring in criminal Justice and I am currently working on my JD

    Seems you have you life back on track, perhaps down the road laws may change or you might have your conviction reviewed.

    I am one of the few people that believe if you are Not in prison, or mentally incapable you should be allowed your RIGHT to own a gun. No matter of your felony offense. If the crime punishment allows you to return to the public, you should have ALL your rights also. No second class citizens.
