... but I think that a prohibited person could still be charged with "felon in possession" but not with the additional charge of "unregistered firearm."

In mountainman's follow-up, I think the person could be charged. Said person is not a "prohibited person" but does possess an illegal firearm.

In other words, someone with a clean record could be charged. Someone with a criminal history could not.

Ain't life grand?
