Rights for Felons?

So you think there are no stupid questions? I may have one...

Can a person who is a convicted felon borrow/rent a firearm at a range or private club?

It seems to me that a convicted felon cannot touch a firearm under any conditions, but I just wanted to verify it.

Mere possession of a firearm by a convicted felon is against the law. Now, is shooting someone else's firearm while they are present (same goes for using a range weapon at the range) constitute possession?

Yep, gave up that right when they did something worthy of a felony conviction.

But, how come those guys with super long rap sheets and multiple weapons convictions don't automatically go to jail?

This is probably the crux of my question.

I have never "rented" a gun at a range before. Do they do background checks to see if you are legally allowed to handle the gun?
