The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution states that
"...the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be
infringed." It sounds simple, but it has not played out that way.
Who may possess a firearm is regulated by federal law. A "prohibited
person" under federal law may not possess a firearm. The sort of
firearm that you may possess is regulated. The location or
circumstances under which you may possess a firearm is regulated.
Federal firearm offenses often carry serious consequences including
mandatory minimum prison sentences and heavy fines. For example, under
the Armed Career Criminal Act, the offense of felon in possession of a
firearm carries a mandatory minimum of 15 years prison. Perhaps the most
surprising is that often times you do not even know about some federal
firearm prohibitions until after you are charged. Two examples of this
are felon in possession of ammunition and possession of a firearm by a
person previously convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence.
