I don't know. I suspect that if the fourteen year old simple battery conviction does not involve a domestic matter, you should be able to purchase and possess a firearm, BUT THE QUESTION REQUIRES RESEARCH. Therefore, if it is important to own a firearm, you will probably have to break down and pay an attorney to do the research: (1) pull your conviction; (2) research the law from 14 years ago; and (3) research the question from a 2011 perspective.
