Moving from California to Texas soon.   I was convicted of a misdemeanor battery charge, and i received a 10 year gun prohibition.  If I move to Texas, am I able to purchase, possess or shoot firearms?  If not, what restrictions would my wife and I have? 

She can't possess a gun in our own house because of my restriction I was advised against her buying any firearms as if they were in my vicinity, I would be arrested and charged.

So I have to get out of this crazy state.

Rambo,

The 10 year probationary period on firearms for certain misdemeanor convictions mandated by California Penal Code 29805 will not be eliminated simply by moving to another state. A violation while in another state could still lead to criminal penalties. Please call in to speak with a program attorney to discuss your options when you get to Texas as well as to discuss the possibility of having the prohibition potentially reduced under California Penal Code 29860.
