You need a lawyer. Not a Texas LEO. Not a bunch of internet gun guys. A lawyer. One versed in both TX law and federal law. Remember that what you say to your lawyer is privileged. What you post on the internet is not.

Good luck.

Edited to add: Here's what federal law has to say on the matter:
Quote:
(g) It shall be unlawful for any person--
(1) who has been convicted in any court of, a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year; . . . .
to ship or transport in interstate or foreign commerce, or possess in or affecting commerce, any firearm or ammunition; or to receive any firearm or ammunition which has been shipped or transported in interstate or foreign commerce.
18 U.S.C.A. ยง 922 (West)(emphasis supplied)
