Here is what is interesting - if "civil rights" lost as a result of state "felony" convictions (which trigger loss of federal gun rights), are restored, so are federal gun rights
even if the state continues to bar the felon her gun rights under state law (majority appellate court rule).This implies that whena state restores gun rights, federal gun rights remain lost unless the core 'civil rights" are restored too by the convicting state.
Civil rights for this purpose are defined by courts as meaning 3 things: the right to vote, the right to run for office, and the right to sit on a jury (thoug a minority of courts look to "the whole of state law" to see if state gun rights are restored in the convicting state).
I use the word "felony" in quotation marks because the federal gun disabling langauge does not deploy the word felony in its text, though common usuage and court cases do - a person loses her federal gun rights when, except for some specified white collar crimes, she is convicted of any offense where she could have been sentenced for more than one year (except for state offenses explicitly classified as a "misdemeanor"state law, in which case the misdemeanor is still disabling as a matter of federal law
So tell us Washington residents - do persons convicted in Washington state lose their right to sit on a jury and run for office when they are convicted of "felonies"? if so, are they "restored" by law after serving time? if so, its arguable that the 9th Cr. just retored a whole passle of peoples' gun rights under federal law!
