Depends on the state you live in. In California, a felon may not own or possess any gun of any kind. However, Federal Law is different. Only violent felonies may preclude you from owning a gun. If it is a non-violent offense, odds are pretty good you can own a long gun. You should always check with local and state law enforcement before you attempt to buy a gun, as being a felon and merely attempting to purchase one can land you in jail.
If that is a felonly, no you can't.
The basic answer is no. A felon cannot own a gun, regardless of what the felony was.
No you can't less you want to go back to Jail with another felony and serve up to three or more years
Majority of people go to jail, for around 10 years for burglarizing someone's property.
It may depend on your prior criminal record, but for that offense alone you could be looking at upwards of 15 years in prison.
No. Once you are a felon, you can no longer own a handgun in any U.S. state. How long you served in prison or the fact that you are now out has nothing to do with it, although, a felon can sometimes have his rights restored, but for information on that, you really should contact an attorney familiar with the process.
Probably not, but there are some circumstances where a felon can have some rights restored. You should check with a local attorney familiar with the process for more information.
depends on what the felone did? He was in federal prison for guns for almost 10 years.
Dr. John Story of Lovell, Wyoming was in prison for almost 16 years. He was convicted in 1985 and paroled in 2001.
It depends on where you are. In Tennessee, you can get a handgun permit as long as you don't have a DUI within 5 years I believe.

Georgia law requires that you be at least 18 years of age to possess either a handgun or long gun such as a rifle or shotgun. While you can legally own a handgun in Georgia at 18 years of age, Federal law requires you to be at least 21 years of age before you can purchase a handgun.
As a convicted felon you can never own a FIREARM.

Yes. Virginia law does not prohibit a person at least 18 years of age from POSSESSING a handgun. However, FEDERAL law will not permit you to PURCHASE a handgun OR handgun ammunition until you are 21.

Depends on the application. If it stipulates a time period then only within that time period. Example: Have you been convicted of a felony in the last 7 years? In the above example if you were convicted of a felony 5 years ago you have to answer yes. If you were convicted of a felony 10 years ago you can answer no. If the question asks "Have you ever been convicted of a felony?" and you have, reguardless of the amount of time that has passed, then you have to answer yes.
