Can you own a gun with a bcd?

Assuming that bcd is Bad Conduct Discharge, the answer is Maybe. A Bad Conduct Discharge ALONE does not prohibit possession of a firearm. Federal law (18 US Code 922) lists the conditions that WILL prohibit possessing a gun. Discharge from the military under Dishonorable conditions is one. However, a BCD is not a Dishonorable Discharge- it is a Discharge under other than Honorable conditions. HOWEVER- if the BCD resulted from a court martial finding of guilt, AND it was for a felony (punishable by a year or more in prison), then the CONVICTION will prohibit possessing a firearm.

If you were a juvenile delinquent would you be able to purchase a firearm legally?

That depends. In the US, persons that have been convicted of a felony (serious crime such as murder, robbery, rape, grand larceny) loss their right to possess a firearm. In the case of a juvenile, tried as an adult, the same law applies. If a juvenile is tried as a juvenile, and is found "not innocent" of a crime that would be a felony for an adult, then they are also prohibited from possessing a firearm. Example- 15 year old commits an armed robbery, is arrested, tried as a juvenile, is found "not innocent" of armed robbery= now prohibited from possessing any firearm. The same 15 year old is arrested for shoplifting a $15 CD, and is found "not innocent" of petty theft MAY possess a firearm once they become an adult,
