9th Circuit upholds firearms ban for felons

A federal appeals court upheld a ban on convicted felons possessing firearms on Monday, saying it’s consistent with the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

Thrice convicted felon Peter Vongxay, 27, had appealed a prison sentence for possession a loaded semiautomatic handgun, Horwood said. Vongxay, whose felony convictions include car burglary and drug possession, argued that the federal statute prohibiting felons from possessing firearms was unconstitutional.

The second amendment establishes the right to keep and bear arms.

In its decision a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in San Francisco concluded that the right to bear arms doesn’t extend to convicted felons. – [source]
