I have a quick legal question, searched for a while but no luck. I have a friend who wants to buy my Ruger 9mm. He was arrested on felony charges years back, but was not convicted. I'm not sure if it was over 5 years ago or not, I told him to get me an exact date. He finished up his probation without any problems, it was for a non violent crime. Can he legally own a handgun? What about a long gun? All the info I've been able to find out through different websites has to deal with convicted felons - and he was not convicted, he got the charge deferred. Thanks in advance. If this thread doesn't belong here, please move to the proper location.
