Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If you have a felony conviction, then an attempt to possess a gun can be a criminal offense as attempted possession of a firearm by a felon. It is also perjury to not put truthful information on the gun form when purchasing the gun to try to conceal a felony.
