From gc70:
"Unless state prisons (as opposed to local jails) are housing a LOT of people with > 1 year sentences for misdemeanors of violence, the nearly three-quarters of a million point-in-time prison population for violent crimes looks very funny compared to the cumulative NICS total of less than half of a million."

I believe that usually, if someone is sentenced to one year or more, they go to state prison. If less than one year, it's county jail. (At least that's the practice here in NJ and in PA.) YMMV.
