No, you may not own or possess a gun in California right now. You can see the law as it presently applies to you here.
What you would have to do to qualify for restoration of your rights is amplified on that page.
Another option if you can amass good evidence of how you've turned your life around would be to apply to the governor for a pardon. The procedure to do this is found here
. and you appear eligible to apply. The law states specifically that
"A person convicted of a felony cannot own or possess firearms. (Penal Code sec. 12021.) If the individual receives a full and unconditional pardon
, he or she may own or possess any type of weapon that may lawfully be possessed by others in California, unless the person was convicted of an offense that involved the use of a dangerous weapon
. (This latter italicized qualification would not appear to apply to you).
There are lawyers who specialize in expungement
/pardon issues, who know the ins and out of these matters and who may be able to "package" you better than you can for yourself. It may be worth your while to arrange for a consultation with one.
