From the Chicago Tribune:
A state report says Wisconsin wardens arrested 29 felons for possessing a firearm during the November gun deer hunt -- the most in seven years. . . .
[F]elons can't possess firearms under state and federal law, but they can purchase hunting licenses in Wisconsin.
State Rep. Jeff Smith, an Eau Claire Democrat, is working on a bill that would prohibit felons from purchasing any kind of gun hunting license.
