    Actually it did. "Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon." That in itself, makes it illegal.

    Didn't say whether or not he had the weapon legally. If the media was serious about gun control they'd find out if he had a lawful right to it. Or was he just simply another mad man making victims of law abiding gun owners?
