Since your showing that you're posting from Tennessee, I used the Tennesee state government website to prove you wrong;

"The citizens of the state of Tennessee have the right to keep and bear arms for their common defense; but the General Assembly has the power, by law, to regulate the wearing of arms with a view to prevent crime. Any resident of Tennessee who has reached twenty-one (21) years of age may apply to the Department of Safety for a handgun permit. If the applicant is not prohibited from purchasing or possessing a firearm in this state pursuant to Tenn. Code Ann.39-17-316 or 39-17-1307(b), 18 U.S.C. 9 (g) or any other state or federal law and the applicant otherwise meets all of the requirements, the Department of Safety shall issue a permit to the applicant."

A criminal conviction record does not in and of itself prohibit a person from purchasing or possessing a firearm.

How exactly does this prove me wrong? Where does it state that a criminal record allows you the right to ccw. Go away, you're barking up the wrong tree.

You're wrong, a criminal record is not neccesarily a bar to obtaining a ccw.
