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?
