    A felony is a disqualifier. Even if you manage to sneak it by the state level the feds will deny your purchases. Are you sure it was a felony? Were you convicted? How old were you?

    You have a couple of problems- being in NJ is one. The other is the felony conviction. No matter when- there is no time out for those. Also no such thing as a "minor" felony. It is or it ain't.

    Under Federal law- (18 US Code, section 922) it is illegal for a convicted felon to possess a firearm. Penalty is 5 years, Federal prison, no probation or parole.

    For persons that were convicted of a STATE felony, there IS a process to petition for restoration of gun rights. First step is to hire an attorney in YOUR state.

    Persons convicted of a FEDERAL felony have no way to restore gun rights short of a Presidential Pardon.

    IF you have not taken care of this, you will be denied a purchase permit, a carry permit, etc etc etc. And that is not just NJ.

    Thank you for your answer I was given a certificate of release back in the state of the felony in New Jersey I guess that is similar to an expungement Plus I just took a plea bargain not so much conviction so maybe with all this it may help

    i would advise talking to an attorney, before going any further on your own. i don't think a certificate of release is the same as expungement, just that you have met the conditions of parole or probation are are released from that. and guessing is a good way to run afoul of the law again. talking to an attorney and finding out for sure would be the best course of action, especially before trying to buy a firearm or caught with one in your possesion.

    without expungement, the felony will always be on your record. better contact a lawyer. getting caught with a firearm within your possession is another felony if convicted. sure trip to prison.
