Can I obtain a passport to travel to another country if I am a convicted felon in the state of Michigan? 7 Answers as of October 04, 2012

The charge was accessory; in fact, the felony was over 10 years ago. I am also wondering if I can ever own a firearm in the state of Michigan. Federal law says no but what about Michigan? Can I get this off my record? I have only been in trouble just once.
