Not unless it involves a conviction for or indictment regarding an assault. The application form has specific provisions regarding felonies and misdemeanors. So you need to verify under which particular charge you were convicted under and compare to the provisions in the form to carry concealed to see if you are still qualified or are now disqualified.
