Under Texas state law a convicted felon may possess a firearm in the residence, in which he lives, once five years have elapsed from the date his sentence was discharged. However, this is not true under federal law. Currently there is only way for you to regain your rights to possess a firearm and that is through a full pardon through the governor’s office. Here is the application to do that.
