Same thing in California if there was no gun in the felony -
and usually if they are searching for drugs in the house and they find the weapons, = probable cause.
My experience in New York State and California involving drug dealers is a warrant search for drugs and weapons, but if neither is involved in the felony, they do not search the house and seize the weapons.
There are people here that have been convicted for non-weapon non-drug felonies but the weapons are still there after he got released from prison coz he has his 30-06 and other rifles he uses for hunting and the local cops do not bother him...
The origin of this law predates the Constitution as the govt was not allowed to seize the weapons of a released felon because his family would starve in wintertime for lack of game meat-
Wrong. All it takes is a domestic violence claim.
