A: A disorderly conduct conviction will not keep you from owning a firearm. It might be a problem with the sheriff, if you want a CCW license. But you can always have the record sealed later and that generally alleviates the sheriff's concerns on minor offenses.

A: No, it will not prevent you from owning a firearm in Ohio. You're eligible to have it expunged one year from the date of the conviction.
