    Default Are Firearms Grandfathered To A Felon

    Hello, I am a convicted felon. Convicted of possession of cds (cocaine) in NJ in 1997 and given a 5yr sentence. I have a couple questions about the legality of me owning guns that are going to be left to me by my father when he is gone. I know I can not get a purchasers ID card, but I can not seem to find a definite answer as to whether or not I can own the shotguns that my father is going to leave me. Also I would like to ask, I am a licensed hunter and even have a rifle permit for NJ, I hunt with my fathers guns every year sometimes without him being with me, can I get in any trouble for having in my possession hunting guns that are his?

    If you are not eligible to own firearms, then you are not eligible to own firearms. That means whether you buy them or inherit them.
