Will a DUI conviction in TN prevent me from purchasing a firearm for any length of time?
I was charged with DUI 1st in TN almost 3 months ago but I have not been convicted yet. My BAC results have not come back yet and I am returning to court in a week. If I am convicted I assume I will be put on some sort of probation. If convicted and placed on probation will I be prohibited from purchasing a firearm for the duration of probation? I have a lawyer representing me, is there any chance of getting the charges reduced and avoiding probation altogether?
You should ask you lawyer about the chance of getting the charges reduced. As far as the firearm is concerned, it is my...

7 years from date of conviction or 7 years from date I completed probation??
On February 23rd, 2009, I received my final conviction for a gross misdemeanor theft charge. On the same date, I started my 2 year probation sentence, which I completed on February 23rd, 2011. I've been trying to a job at a company I would like to work at. On the employment application, it ask "have you ever been convicted of a crime in the past 7 years." My question is, do I count 7 years from conviction or do I count 7 years from when I completed probation?
