Yes. The general prohibition of a convicted felon owning a firearm is a federal statute - Title 18 U.S.C. 922 (g). The term "firearm" is defined as a device that uses gunpowder as the propellant for the cartridge. Black powder firearms are exempt, as are any bow and arrow device (including cross-bow), and air guns and CO2 powered guns.
