I have been researching the purchase of a gun for home protection in the State of Texas. I know that felons cannot possess arms, nor someone convicted of domestic assault/violence charges. I was convicted of a Class A Misdemeanor Assault with Bodily Injury (Not Domestic) with a max sentence of (1) year that was probated at (1) year. I successfully completed the probationary period and am curious if I am now eligible for the purchase of a firearm.
Also, a second question... My spouse owns a firearm; am I allowed to use her weapon in "the hopefully not needed" event of a break in (Castle Doctrine)?
Thanks in advance for any help on this matter!
