It doesn’t seem to make any sense.

I finally found a happy medium. Gun Yoga is going to be all the rage.

While I think the removal is strange I can see where it's a narrow interpretation. If a person is avoiding arrest after being charged with a crime and has never been convicted of one, then technically he's not a felon and isn't a prohibited buyer.

I would agree a gray area; from the article:


""The FBI has long held that anyone who remains at large and wanted for arrest should not be allowed to purchase a weapon.


According to the database, as reported by the Post, the agency removed 500,000 names of people defined as a fugitive. Now there are only 788 names on the list.


It came after the FBI, on February 15, ordered its Criminal Justice Information Services Division to remove all fugitives of justice from the system and that “entries will not be permitted” until further notice.""


At this point the person on that list has been charged with a crime; but are still at large; and have not been convicted of that crime in a court of law: Defiantly a gray area: If you can take a person's passport and restrict their movements when they are out on bail, I could see denying the purchase of a firearm, you have already been charged with a crime. Once that charge has been resolved in the courts, and if found not guilty, then the firearm restriction can be lifted.

I don't know about other states but Maryland Counties publish a list of Maryland's Most Wanted. For missed child support. Are those guys "fugitives"?
