If the abuser has been convicted of a domestic violence misdemeanor, can s/he keep or buy a gun?

No.  Under federal law, if the abuser has been convicted of a felony or a domestic violence misdemeanor, s/he cannot have or buy a gun.* If you're not sure if the abuser has been convicted of a domestic violence misdemeanor, see What crimes are considered domestic violence misdemeanors?

In addition, Oklahoma state law makes it illegal for someone convicted of certain crimes to have a gun.  To read the list of crimes, go to I am a victim of domestic violence and the abuser has a gun. Is that legal?
