please tell me if you were charged and convicted as an adult, what the crime was and your sentence and did this happen in FLA
according to FLA law, if you were convicted as a juvenile then you can have your records expunged 5 years after reaching age 21. so you would have a couple more years before you can apply for the expunction. once you do that then you would be able to own a gun. you should confer with a nearby lawyer to help you when the time comes because you will want to make sure that the records are then properly sealed
good luck to you
who did a government check? was that a NICS background check? If NICS came back clean then you're good to go. i am not sure how that is possible when the law states that if you were convicted you must be expunged to have records cleared. perhaps you got a deferred sentence where you complete some type of probation? that is why I asked what the sentence was
well, if you had a probabtion and you successfully completed it then your juvenile record would be sealed at this point. if you have been convicted and had a sentence of say 1 year and that would still pertain. if pro bass did a federal background check thru NICS and nothing showed then that is because you completed your probation and records have been sealed.
if NICS comes backs clean then you can buy a gun
