In most states it is another felony for a convicted felon to own or be in posession of a firearm.
It would also depend upon the person's "terms of release". Even though someone has served their sentence, in most cases certain requirements are imposed upon said person, especially when it pertains to firearms. Generally a convicted felon cannot use or be in the presence of a firearm for several years; the exact time would be determined by the release agreement and/or state law . In a few states an exception is made relating to legal, licensed firearms belonging to another person but in the same residence as the person in question.
A convicted felon always remains a convicted felon. That classification NEVER 'goes away. An expunged or sealed record only means that your record is sealed from the view of the general public. It always remains accessible to government agencies, law enforcement and the courts. Any restrictions placed upon you by your status as a convicted felon will always remain in place and will never go away. The only advantage is that the general public will not be able to learn of your past offense.
If you were not convicted, then you can still purchase a gun. Even if you had been convicted of a misdemeanor, you could still purchase a gun, but not for a felony. I should know, I just spent 18 months and $20,000 fighting charges of aggravated assault and commission of a felony with a firearm. I won.
A convicted felon cant own a firearm in the United States.I guess you could try to join the Army?........--------------------------------------------Added: In SOME states felons convicted of statecrimes can gain partial restoration of firearms privileges. However Federally convicted felons can NEVER regain firearms privileges. Congress has continuously failed to fund any federal process by which federally convicted felons can do so.----------------------------------------------Forget about joining the Army, they do not take felons.
