If you have a felony in NJ can you ever own a firearm?

It is my understanding, that any person ever convicted of a felony, cannot legally own a firearm in the United States. Updated: it depends on the type of crime, length of time since you completed your sentence (not got paroled) and the type of firearm you want. You must first get your record expunged, which they won't do violent or domestic crimes, and then you can posses most hunting weapons but still not handguns. In order to own a handgun you must receive a pardon from the governor of the state you were convicted in.
