The criminal CONVICTIONS (not charges, but convictions) that will prevent a person from buying a firearm include: 1. Felonies- a crime that COULD be punished by confinement in prison for a year or more 2. A crime of domestic violence, such as assault on your wife or husband 3. Being an unlawful user of narcotics. Also being under indictment for a crime, a restraining order, a fugitive from justice, an illegal alien, or dishonorably discharged from the US Military.

IF you are referring to the South Dakota criminal statute that deals with misprison of a felony (concealing a felony that someone else has committed) I THINK that is a misdemeanor, not a felony- but you should check with an attorney in YOUR state. I am not an attorney, and not qualified to give legal advice.
