HAHAHAHA yes, you can even touch them. They are secured to the table with wire cable attached to a loud alarm. You break the cable the alarm goes off...

You can even touch the ammo, knives, holsters, leather, etc.

There are two convicted felons who are regulars at the gun range I go to, they don't have any problems. They usually show up with someone else and they fire away like the rest of us.

Well how about this? I am a vendor at a gun show. I sell knives and guns and gun accessories. I have a cousin who was convicted of a non-violent felony. He needs some work on the side. I want him to help me man my tables. If my guns are secure and he does not touch any of them he is abiding by the law, correct?

You need to check your state laws as well as the federal ones.

I don't think there are any restrictions of "touching" a firearm, only in the purchase and possession of a firearm. 20+ years ago, I got in some trouble with drugs. I played in a band and was caught with a felony possession of some white powder (less than a quarter gram). That seems as if it was a lifetime ago, and I have no desire to have anything to do with drugs at all, yet, because it was a felony, I cannot vote, I can't own a business, I can never own a firearm, etc. I am reduced to a second class citizen because of the sins of my youth.

You can attend, touch, inquire, etc.

You can even try to buy one...you just may get refused.

Some states allow convicts to purchase firearms, if its a non-violent or drug offense...but its on you to check.

there is no penalty for trying to buy one, its just like if you go to a car dealer and have no lic to drive.

Youll get a see ya, and thanks for shopping.

Some states you can even buy shotguns and rifles with violent offenses.

Best place to call, is a local arms dealer.

And most importantly, BE HONEST when you ask them.
