Can a felon shoot rental guns

Got a few coworkers who are drug felons, can they shoot at a rental range with my (I’m not a felon) guns or the guns the range rents?

So first of all, depends on the drug. Many pot possession crimes can now be expunged. My advice would first be: if its expunge-able, get it expunged.

Second, "possession" is not the same as rental at a range. Nor is a range rental a loan.

I would really have them ask their attorney about this, because there is not a blanket answer - depends on the crime, whether its able to be expunged, etc.

There was a bill last session to define "loan" in the statute, but I believe it died at the last minute, due to a petulant house member, IIRC.

If you take them down to Baltimore City it’s almost exclusively felons shooting guns. Just to be clear though Mayor Jack Young didn’t shoot anyone.

Does anyone else ever wonder why a felon can no longer buy, own, possess, or shoot a firearm, but can still buy, own, possess, and use alcohol, automobiles, knives, ball bats, etc etc? I understand murderers, rapists, molesters, etc charged with heinous, violent crimes.
It has taken me several years to change my mind on this, but I believe that once someone serves a prison sentence for a non violent, non firearms related crime, they’re “debt” has been paid and ALL rights should be restored upon release. Let’s face it, if someone wants a firearm, they’re going to get one. I do think that SOME would actually try to do it the right way and buy a gun legally. SOME buying one legally would be better than ALL buying them illegally.
I imagine that there are going to be naysayers, but before you do, stop a minute and think of how many times all of us has probably, at some point broken a law that would’ve landed us in prison and didn’t even know it. I think there needs to be some revamping of the system.
