Hello and welcome to Just Answer. No attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site, the answers are for general information. By continuing, you confirm that you understand and agree to these terms.

The law in North Dakota is that persons who have been convicted of felonies involving violence or threats (whether under North Dakota law, in another state, or under federal law), may not possess a firearm for ten years (the clock begins to run at the date of conviction or after the sentence is complete, whichever is later). The firearm ban is five years for people convicted of felonies not involving violence or threats, or class A misdemeanors (or their equivalent) involving violence or threats, and committed using a weapon.
