Felon in Possession of a Firearm

If you've been convicted of a felony in Virginia, you cannot possess a firearm. Possession is more than just carrying the gun in your hand or in a holster. Possession can be constructive, which means that you do not have to be in actual possession of a gun. For example, if you are committing a crime with someone and the other person uses the gun, you can be convicted of being in possession of a firearm. See Blake v. Commonwealth, 45 Va. App. 70 (1993).
