delincuente


Explanation:
As in Spain, the legal terminology in the United States calls for the translation of crime as "delito" (not "crimen"). So a criminal is a "delincuente".

delincuente condenado

persona con antecedentes penales


Explanation:
Creo que el texto no se refiere a quien está cumpliendo la condena (que obviamente no puede poseer armas), sino a la persona que ha tenido una condena anterior, y a quien por ello no se autoriza a poseer armas, aunque ya la haya purgado. Si no es este el contexto, "delincuente condenado" sería lo apropiado.
Espero que te sirva
