Federal Laws also say a felon can't own a gun, but in Texas they can after 5 years.
Identify Prohibited Persons
The Gun Control Act (GCA), codified at 18 U.S.C. § 922(g), makes it unlawful for certain categories of persons to ship, transport, receive, or possess firearms or ammunition, to include any person:
convicted in any court of a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year;
who is a fugitive from justice;
who is an unlawful user of or addicted to any controlled substance (as defined in section 102 of the Controlled Substances Act, codified at 21 U.S.C. § 802);
who has been adjudicated as a mental defective or has been committed to any mental institution;
who is an illegal alien;
who has been discharged from the Armed Forces under dishonorable conditions;
who has renounced his or her United States citizenship;
who is subject to a court order restraining the person from harassing, stalking, or threatening an intimate partner or child of the intimate partner; or
who has been convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence.
The GCA at 18 U.S.C. § 992(n) also makes it unlawful for any person under indictment for a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year to ship, transport, or receive firearms or ammunition.
Further, the GCA at 18 U.S.C. § 922(d) makes it unlawful to sell or otherwise dispose of firearms or ammunition to any person who is prohibited from shipping, transporting, receiving, or possessing firearms or ammunition.
But since they are DACA they are not considered Illegal by Executive Order, and as I have stated a few times they are eligible for a Texas Driver Licenses or State ID (Which an illegal alien can not get) and they can get a valid Social Security number and card, Another thing a illegal alien or most legal visa receipents can not get.

This shows that the federal government takes the position that DACA status individual is still a prohibited possessor. That’s the feds. As far as Texas law, it doesn’t appear to have any prohibition on MPA carry. I would also recommend he not attempt to purchase a gun from a FFL dealer and that someone knowing his status not sell him one privately. Both would appear to be violating federal law.
