Can someone who has a drug conviction in their past adopt a child in the state of Texas I am married own my own home and am drug free for 4 years now?
Adoption in America is so hard, it takes forever, some people wait two years or more. They put you through the ringer and then some. I would see what the application asks for, if you werent ever arrested or have any medical history of drug use, on paper, I wouldn't tell them, its none of there business. You are drug free now and that is what counts, congratulations and keep up the "great" work. Sorry I must have been brain cramping. Your question did mention a conviction. Anyway, give it your best shot and check around to quite a few agency, some may be more lienent then others. Good luck.

At what age can you leave home if your adoptive mom is gay and has had trouble in the past with the law and drugs?
Answer . Unless you have been emancipated, you cannot leave home without parental consent until you reach the age of majority (in most states the age of majority is 18, bu…t in a few states it's higher). Her being your adoptive mom is irrelevant, as is her being gay. As far as the drug problems, from the way you worded the question it appears that you're talking about drug problems in the PAST rather than the present. Lots of people have had drug problems in their past, but then cleaned up their lives. If she's CURRENTLY using drugs then I'd urge you to discuss the situation with a school counselor. If you are in a dangerous or unsafe environment, then you need to report it immediately.

Generally speaking, a felon cannot own or even possess a firearm anywhere in the U.S. unless the felon has had his or her rights restored.
Probably not. Federal law prohibits felons from possessing firearms. Some states, like Washington, may allow it; but even they usually do not allow persons with violent feloni…es or drug related felonies to possess a firearm.
You will need to consult a lawyer. It is possible to have your Second Amendment right restored, but, it is not easy.
In the state of Missouri can a person convicted of a felony 21 years ago have a shotgun or rifle owned by your wife be in the home?
You need to consult a lawyer familiar with firearms law.
The very short answer is, yes. A person living with a felon can own a gun as long as that person isn't otherwise disqualified. To be completely legal, the felon must have abso…lutely no possible access to the gun. A gun in the household with a felon however, is a sticky situation. Even if you are technically legal, it could cause problems.
Persons that are "unlawful users of, or addicted to controlled drugs" are prohibited by Federal law from purchasing firearms. In general, a SINGLE misdemeanor conviction for p…ossession or marijuana may not be a disqualifier. Multiple convictions are more likely to disqualify you. You may want to check with the firearms section of the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. This is the Federal agency that regulates firearms. You can find their website under ATF.gov.

No a felon owning a gun is a violation of the law and is possibly endangering the public. It doesn't matter if the person is nonviolent, what matters is that the person is a f…elon. Once a felony is on a persons record it never comes off.
