Under NY law, pellet guns are considered "imitation weapons" under Gen. Bus. Law, Art. 39-b, s. 871.2. (2012) and may not be sold in New York except for use in theatrical productions and for distribution in interstate commerce.
Pellet guns may not be possessed in the five boroughs of New York City.
Pellet guns described in s. 871.2 (in the citation above) could be possessed in areas other than the boroughs of New York City only if "such imitation weapon (a) is colored other than black, blue, silver or aluminum, (b) is marked with a non-removable orange stripe which is at least one inch in width and runs the entire length of the barrel on each side and the front end of the barrel, and (c) has a barrel at least one inch in diameter that is closed for a distance of not less than one-half inch from the front-end of its barrel with the same material of which the imitation weapon is made. "Imitation weapon" does not include any nonfiring replica of an antique firearm, the original of which was designed, manufactured and produced prior to eighteen hundred ninety-eight."
As a felon, however, you may only possess (own) guns if your certificate of rehabilitation says you may.
State statutes and/or local ordinances prohibit the sale and possession of air guns, CO2 guns and slingshots in some areas such as San Francisco CA, Chicago IL, Morton Grove IL, Buffalo NY, Philadelphia PA, New Jersey, Washington DC, Bronx NY, Brooklyn NY, Long Island City NY, Manhattan NY, Queens NY, New York City NY, and Staten Island NY. Persons in New Jersey need a permit for any air gun. Michigan residents- .177 cal air rifles and smooth bore (bb only) air pistols are allowed. All other airguns are restricted and we cannot ship them to your area. Air Soft guns are restricted in San Francisco CA, Chicago IL, Morton Grove IL, Buffalo NY, Philadelphia PA, Bronx NY, Brooklyn NY, Long Island City NY, Manhattan NY, Queens NY, New York City NY.In most states other than the above places a felon may have a bb gun, air gun or gas gun so long as state statutes do not include such guns in it's definition of a firearm. In fact, some states such as North Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee and others allow felons to own firearms with the exception of handguns.Added 7/5/09: USE CAUTION in relying on all the information contained in the above answer. My recent research has discovered that despite what the above answer states, (specifically) North Carolina does NOT allow firearm ownership to convicted felons. (See below link)
The 2nd amendment to the Constitution grants everyone the right to bear arms (have a gun) for their personal protection, as well as the protection of your family, and your property. You do not need a gun permit to have a gun in your own house. Your gun does not have to be registered with the government either. Actually, registration depends on where you are. There is no national registration, but a few individual states require it. CA, MA, IL, and IIRC, NY and NJ, and possibly a few others.
You must have watch the news about the kid who was shot for holding a BB gun in public, You are allowed to purchase and fire a BB/Pellet gun, but can ONLY in private such as your backyard, inside of your home, or in Airsoft events. You cannot fire or show to the public, however you are permitted to carry it in public, ONLY if it is concealed somewhere and not seen by others. Police do not have permission to take your BB gun or arrest you if you are shooting it on your property, but if you shot someone and they file a complaint, then you are in trouble, Hope this Helps :)
Dependent on circumstances. If it's something which is only a state felony (IIRC, multiple DUIs is a state felony in NY), then it's possible to apply for disability. If the conviction was for something defined as a felony under federal law, I suppose it's theoretically possible, but the odds would be stacked greatly - perhaps even insurmountably - against you.
