    Spend money on a lawyer. Those are probably all misdemeanors, but your friend would likely be happier not finding out the hard way.

    Does he still have a drinking problem?

    I wouldn't risk selling him a gun, personally. He may be able to swing it, checking with a lawyer is definitely worth it in this case, too much there to guess at.

    I believe a second DUI, or an initial DUI that involves an accident in which there are injuries (or, death) becomes a felony in Oregon. This person can not legally purchase a gun in this state. If however, this person has been clean for say 5 years, or more and can get some folks to attest to his good character...he can petition a circuit court to waive the prohibition on him and he can then legally do so.

    You can google Oregon gun laws.

    The individual in question has quite a history exercising extremely poor judgement. A firearm is the last thing this individual needs.

    Any criminal background that includes felony conviction and / or domestic violence convictions will remove you from gun ownership eligibility.
