Hi, My name is Philip. I am an attorney with over 16 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.
The answer is no. A general court-martial is the military version of a federal felony court.
If you have a general court-martial conviction you are precluded from possessing a firearm under title 18 US code.
Now, if you were to have the conviction removed, that would take away prohibition against ownership. However, the only way to remove the conviction after the appeals have completed, is with a pardon from the president.
Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
