In Louisiana, it is unlawful for any person who has been convicted of certain felonies, or persons found not guilty by reason of insanity for certain offenses, to possess a firearm. A conviction of possession of firearm or carrying concealed weapon by a person convicted of certain felonies can land a person in jail for up to 20 years.
