When I was a reporter in Idaho in the 1980s, I learned of a case wherein a convicted felon had all his gun rights restored.
He had been convicted of felony embezzlement.
In this instance it wasn't a violent crime and, as I recall, it was decided that embezzlement didn't qualify for the prohibition against owning firearms of any type.
I can't recall the reasoning.
It caused quite a controversy among the populace, the majority of which believed that ANY convicted felon should not be allowed to ANY type of firearm.
I don't recall hearing that black powder firearms were exempt from this prohibition. I knew of some convicted felons who hunted deer and elk with a bow, but never heard them hunting with black powder firearms.
I'd investigate this very closely; it could be a practice that is simply overlooked by local authorities. It may not be legal.
