Can I Own a Firearm If I Have Been Convicted of a Felony? “If you’ve been convicted of a felony in the past in California, under federal law, you will not be able to own or possess a firearm. However, state law in California, there are some cases that have come down that say if your case has been reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor and ultimately expunged from your record, that you can own or possess a firearm.
However, some jurisdictions or some district attorneys’ offices in California follow the federal guidelines, and, therefore, you should not own or possess a firearm if convicted of a felony in California.” – Criminal Defense Lawyer Philip Greenberg
