DWI Conviction and buying a handgun in Texas?
I was convicted of a DWI in February of 2008.
I know I have to wait 5 years to get a CHL, but can I still buy a handgun?
Best Answer :
shouldn't be a problem. dwi is a misdemeanor, not a felony, so it shouldn't affect your gun rights legally
Other Answer(2) :
I hope not.
If you are capable of drinking and getting behind the wheel, what is there to stop you from drinking and picking up your gun?
I agree, because everyone charged with DWI is a murderer!
I'm pretty sure you can buy a gun, but there might be a 3-day waiting period. Anyone know for sure?
Edit: you can kill someone with a baseball bat, but no one is trying to stop you from going to see the Rangers.
