    Sounds like you answered your own question then - yes, if the Feds are involved it is worse. Under federal law, the crime of Felon in Possession of a Firearm is a Class D felony, punishable by up to ten years in prison, three years of supervised release, and $250,000 in fines.

      From what I have seen, and I have researched cases with this charge in the past, it is unlikely to receive a charge for posession without other circumstances. For instance you are stopped and your car is searched. As many times as I have been stopped for speeding, failure to yield, etc., I have never been close to having my vehicle searched. At least in the US. Federalis definitely tossed my car in Mexico at a checkpoint because I wouldn't give them a bribe. Literally took absolutely everything out of my car and tossed it in the street.
      Anyways, it does give anyone who is angry at you a fair bit of leverage "Joe Bob is a felon and keeps a Glock under the driver seat" could lead to police involvement.

      I personally would rather avoid 9 months in state, let alone ten years in Federal custody. The only way to go is contacting a lawyer and attempting to have your conviction expunged/sealed/whatevered.

          Well, if caught, he has a lengthy stretch in front of him. If feuding, a phone call and you win.

              That long. There is always the possibility of serving time at home, early release, etc., but you can't count on that. I know of a pedophile who was over 70 with health issues and was caught watching things on internet. Feds tried pretty hard to leave him at home with an ankle monitor. He kept trying to argue with everyone that being interested in three-year-olds was no different than interracial marriage in the 1950s and 50 years from now everyone would agree it was acceptable(among other things). Sort of wore out his welcome everywhere pretty fast and they didn't have much choice but to take him. Floated around with an ankle monitor for about two years though. Blew my mind.
