    I was told that if you are disabled and have a misdemeanor charge on you(I thought it was only a felony) that you couldn't own a gun to hunt.If anyone can clear this up for me,it'd be appreciated.I think I can but I may be wrong.I'm in KY also.
    Thanks for any help or info.

    Thanks for the info so quick! I appreciate it.

    That doesn't make any sense though.My misdemeanor wasn't that bad and a first offense.Oh well,maybe there is a way around it,I doubt it,I'll keep digging some more,probably to new avail though.
    Reps your way derbycitycatman!!!

    Good evening John, pay particular attention to the verbage that denotes involvement even misdomeaner, concerning domestic violence.

    Almost all states, if not all have some provision for disabled persons to be allowed to hunt & w/o paying most often.

    John call your local courthouse. Alot of it is up to a judge. Also just because you are not allowed to have a firearm registered in your name, may not mean that you can't hunt.

    I know many people with disablities who hunt but I am not familiar with Kentucky...I am sure a person would need to complete The Hunter Safety Course before you can get a license, thats become fairly common.

    If the issue is firearms ownership the Sherriff can easily answer that one.

    This law has been on the books for some time. What I'd like to know is what are the NRA, and other gun groups doing about it? This is a violation of Constitutional rights in the extreme, The Civil rights groups ought to be all over this also. I would hate to see this go on because nobody had the gumption to do anything.

    if its that bad think archery. you can still go out with your bow in rifle season (provided you have your archery tag) you just cant reach out and touch someone that far.

    A muzzleloader is considered a non-gun and can be sold through the mail, since this is considered as such it cannot be labeled a gun. But there are some muzzleloaders that have the capability of interchangeable barrels ( like the one I own) this muzzleloader is.......considered a firearm because of this feature..... it even say's so on the box.......Sumthing to ponder about......

    From the little Ive read as long as its not related to domestic violence in any way it doesnt affect you, you can still own a gun. If your disabled you can always hunt with a crossbow with a doctors note or something like that.

    Even convicted felons can get their gun rights back by going thru a lawyer. If your record has been clean for 5 years or more it would be easy...and cheap. You should start right now so you'll be ready for next season.
