    hypothetical question regarding guns and criminal record

    before i post this question, let me state that i've never been arrested or convicted of a crime in my life (except speeding ) This is strictly a curiousity question.

    If a person is convicted of a felony, serves their time, does probation, etc....... how long is it before they are allowed to own a gun again? Never ?

    IIRC - it will almost certainly be never!

    Felony conviction = Never owning a firearm again.

    In Texas - a felony conviction means never! For Class A or Class B misdemeanor you gotta wait 5 years to apply.

    You can, however, petition the court to have your civil right restored with a single felony on your record.

    A lot depends on how you were sentenced.

    Congress has blocked funding for the hearings required to get federal firearms rights restored to felons who undergo the correct process for well over a decade now. There's really no recourse.

    In some states, misdemeanor convictions of a non-domestic nature will sometimes also strip you of firearms ownership. It's one of the reasons I can't visit one or two states in the union.

    I'd imagine a Presidential pardon would do the trick.
