It appears that is a Class A felony in OR. In OR, it is unlawful for a felon to possess any firearm except:


  • If the offense was declared to be a misdemeanor, at the time of judgment, by the court.


  • If the offense was for possession of marijuana and the conviction was prior to January 1, 1972.


  • If the person was convicted of only one felony under the laws of Oregon or another state, or under U.S. law, and it did not involve criminal homicide, or the possession or use of a firearm or switchblade knife, provided the person was discharged from imprisonment, parole or probation fifteen years before.


  • Where the individual has been granted relief from the disability under Oregon or Federal law, or the person's record has been expunged.

So, it appears that you should be able to apply for a permit.
