Default "Violent Crime" & Parole Question

I have two questions that I decided to post here because I have been unable to find information elsewhere.

1. Does anyone know if Possession of Prohibited Firearm and/or Conspiracy to Possess a Prohibited Firearm is considered a "violent crime"? There were no victims and no violence, it was a straw purchase.

2. Who determines if an inmate, upon release on parole, goes to a halfway house or their approved home plan? Parole or the judge who ruled?

For Pennsylvania, these are the "crimes of violence".
