Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. Please be patient as I may need to research for you, and it also takes time to compose and type a reply.

Thank You

Unfortunately, no. Anyone convicted of a felony charge loses his state and Federal gun rights at that point. You don't get to use up the time left until your carry permit expires. The carry permit won't save you if you are caught with a firearm. You will be charged as a felon in possession of a firearm and face prison time.
