Inane and stupid, that's a federal mandate that cannot be superceded by a State. Typical in these things when the opposing side writes the piece.
Not so. A felon can get an expungement in the state in which the felony was charged. It does carry a cost but if the person wants it bad enough and meets the requirements, it can be cleared from his record and all Rights would be restored. Just be prepared to spend somewhere in the neighborhood of $1,500.
