Do shooting ranges prohibit convicted felons?

I’ll be going in with an airgun.

    Ranges don't do background checks. You show up and pay for a lane, just like a bowling alley.

    Whether or not a particular felony conviction makes it unlawful to possess a particular 'airgun' varies by location.

    No range I know of will allow you to use an airgun.  On the other hand why do you need to go to a range when you can fire an airgun practically anywhere?

    Felon or not, the range may prohibit air guns.

    Ranges aren’t safe.

    I`ve been to a few shooting ranges but have never seen a sign posted to prohibit convicted felons. The burden of felons not being allowed to be around guns belongs to the felon. A felon knows the rules or back to the pokey. Some convicted felons of violent crimes are not even allowed in gun shows, however, no keep out signs there either.

    It is not against the law for a convicted felon to possess an air gun or to possess a bow and arrow or a spear. And a convicted felon can have their rights restored after they have served their sentence.

      Nope, not in every case. Depends on the crime and degree. If it was a crime of violence- they will always be prohibited from having possession of a firearm. Unless they can appeal the charges and have their record cleared.
