do you need a permit to own in nevada? either way i guess it doesnt matter. go try to buy a weapon, fill out the forms DO NOT LIE ON FORMS, if you get denied you can appeal the reason of denial. i guess it also depends on how long ago it was and the circumstances of the felony. but it doesnt hurt to try and see what happens. it will either be a yes or no, then go from there.

Normally, if you are a convicted felon, you will need a Pardon from the Governor [President, if a federal offense]. Or an acquital on appeal of the conviction.

you need a competent attorney to give you the exact process you will have to go through in your State. Do not be surprised if you are told that it might take years.

lay low a year or so and study the situation soberly.
do not be seen near a gun, nor heard talking about them until you have done some homework.
Google your state government agencies and KNOW the law.
let a little time slip by:
remember: time wounds all heals...errr...what izzit...
oh yeah: time heals all wounds...
anyway, go at it slow, keep nose clean, research...then go get that lawyer...

Class D is low

My state doesn't even have a Class D. Class A Murder is worse, followed by Class B, Class C, and finally Class D in many states. After that come the misdemeanor classes. Class D can get you into jail from 6 mos to 5 years, though once again, it varies by state. A first time offender can often get into a diversion program to prevent jail time. Theft is often a Class D as is possession of drugs, hacking a government computer, etc. ANSWER REALLY DEPENDS ON STATE, but that's the general idea. Although it's relatively minor compared to the REALLY bad guys, 'felony' as a term is bad news and can be used in 'three strikes your out' situations that get you life in prison.

Your best bet is to find a lawyer,who is extremly knowledable with the gun laws of your state.If i were you id check with the NRA and see if they can point you in the right direction.

by googling "Restoration, Civil Rights, [Your State name]". Every state has such a process, and your state Department of Corrections should be able to help you.
