    Can the government prevent someone who is in good standing and used weapons (ie an M4) in the military, from possessing / owning weapons while a civilian?

    - This is not one of those cases where there is a domestic disturbance hold -

    "the fact that he has been authorized to possess and use, and has in fact possessed and used, firearms while he served in the military and while he worked as a state correctional officer"
    "honorable discharge" from Military

    PA, Pennsylvania, is the authority which denied Yox his rights as they relate to the 2nd amendment.

    I would guess if you can't carry as a civy,the back round check would prevent you from getting the job where you need to carry

    This is an extremely confusing post, but I think you're trying to ask if there are "on the job" exceptions to otherwise blanket firearm prohibition laws. There are. Under federal law, those who suffer a firearms disability due to certain conditions can still carry and use firearms in the course of their jobs as military or law enforcement.
