If a person is a convicted felon, can they be arrested for riding in the car with someone who has a gun?

Hello Tray. Unfortunately, yes. By Federal law 18 U.S.C. 922, all convicted felons ( unless their crime has been expunged or pardoned) are under Weapons Under Disability which states that any person convicted of any felony crime cannot own, possess, purchase or be in the area with firearms. If a person is caught just riding with someone who is carrying, he could be charged using WUD. This is not part of any parole agreement ( that would be a separate issue) and is for life.

I hope this helps and you can find it useful
