The sealing of your record entitles you to answer "no" to inquiries regarding the existence of your criminal history in most, but not all, circumstances. Your ability to possess a firearm is controlled by whether you have been convicted of a felony. Since you qualified for a record sealing, you were not a convicted felon and should otherwise qualify for a firearm permit.


You should be fine as long as you were never convicted of a crime of domestic violence or a felony.
