If the maximum possible penalty for your crime is a year or more in prison, your constitutional right to have guns is gone. If it was less than a year, you can have all the guns you want. Does that make sense.? Martha Stewart can't have a gun to defend herself but a convicted drunk driver can - which is the more heinous criminal? The 2A says "the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." Note those last 4 words.
