No, nor in any other State.
Under what is called the Lautenberg Amendment, Federal Law prohibits anyone convicted of any domestic violence crime from ever owning or possessing a firearm.
This even applies to military personnel on duty - so the military has had to discharge hundreds of troops who could no longer be issued weapons.

I thought it was illegal for a convicted felon in USA was not allowed to own a firearm. Did you serve time in jail? If you havent you might still be alloweed to own a firearm.

No, instead you can use the money to get professional help.
