Possession of a firearm by a felon can be a state crime. That would mean care, custody, control or "management" of a firearm in violation of Texas law.

Federal law is stricter. It prohibits ANY possession of firearms by convicted felons.

I am not going to lay out the details of these laws because their application requires knowing the facts, and I believe your husband really needs to consult with a lawyer about this.
