If you were convicted of a felony of any type and/or a crime that would be considered a crime of violence, you cannot legally carry a firearm unless the conviction is nonadjudicated, restoration of the right to carry or unless you receive a pardon, either from the governor of the state of conviction or from the President of the United States.

So, a discharge of conviction, by itself, would not allow you to carry a firearm.

I wish I had better news for you under the circumstances. I am a licensed attorney that have over a dozen years experience dealing with firearm related legal topics. I frequently speak at engagements and lectures on the topic as well.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Please also rate my answer positively (4 or 5 stars) so I can receive credit for my work.
