Had a felony charge 42 years ago. Can I legally own a gun?
Hi! I'm curious. I had a felony charge on me back in 1974 when I was 17 in North Carolina. No jail time just 24 months probation and that was the end of it. I live in Texas and would like to know if I can legally own a gun now that it's been 42 years. It's the only time in my life I had a problem. I was also under 18. Since then I've led a great life I was a pro athlete for 13 years, I've starred in movies and reality TV so I'd hope that all stand for something. Thanks.
May I buy and posses a firearm in the state of Louisiana now
May I buy and posses a firearm in the state of Louisiana now that it has been over 10 years since I finished my probation on a felony conviction of simple burglary? I received the first offender pardon at the time. I talked to a federal atf agent last year, and he told me that Obama and the federal government doesn't recognize the state pardon now and I wasn't able to purchase or possess a firearm outside of Louisiana now? Is this true?

About 16 years ago, I served federal probation for a felony
About 16 years ago, I served federal probation for a felony in Florida, the probation was completed successfully. Am I still considered "a convicted felon" for the purpose of jury duty? Am I able to vote? All this time I have thought that I would not be eligible for jury duty or able to vote, but received a jury summons in the mail today and was wondering.
