Dude likely has a felony conviction that is serious enough that PA law does not allow possession.

There are carve outs in PA law that allow felons to possess (not purchase, but possess) firearms. But these must be low level non-violent felonies without repeat offenses.

It ain't communist you cowardly fool, it's society placing limits and it's fully constitutional as per SCOTUS.

0650, there ARE limits. It's as 0743 stated, FULLY constitutional! No one with a record of certain offences should EVER possess a firearm, period! I can think of several, murder, domestic violence, sex offender, etc.
