Question
I was dishonorably discharged from the navy 27 years ago. I live in the state of SC can I own a hunting rifle?

Answer
This is from the ATF website:

The Gun Control Act (GCA) makes it unlawful for certain categories of persons to ship, transport, receive, or possess firearms. 18 USC 922(g). Transfers of firearms to any such prohibited persons are also unlawful. 18 USC 922(d).

These categories include any person:
