    Answered . Under federal law, it is unlawful for any person who has been convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence to transport, possess, or to receive any firearm or ammunition. [18 U.S.C. 922(g)(9)] You could face up to 10 years in federal prison for violating this law. There is no exception for deaf persons.
