    Not the perfect thread for this, but what the hell...Federal law bars you from possessing guns or ammo if, among other things, you were ever convicted of a state misdemeanor punishable by more than 2 years. Retail theft can be a 1st degree misdemeanor in PA for frequent flyers, which is punishable by more than 2 years.

    To give you a specific answer we'd have to look at the statute under which you were charged, as it read 22 years ago,

    I think I'll go with the greater benifit to pa citizens thank you.

    This should be a warning poster in shops.
    Is stealing from here worth this?

    Sometimes moral turpitude prevails via catch 22.
