You didn't answer my question. The problem that you have here is there is a federal law which prohibits any person convicted of domestic violence from being able to possess a firearm.
While Illinois may have issued you a card, FL is not obligated to do so. If your conviction is ambiguous, then it is within the right of the state to force you to prove that the conviction was not for a crime punishable in FL as domestic violence.
To be legal as far as the feds are concerned, you will have to have an expungement
of your criminal record
of domestic violence and a specific court
order granting you beck your rights to possess firearms. Here is the law regarding domestic violence convictions:
So, even if you talk FL into giving you a card--the BATF can come to your home, arrest you, prosecute you and drop you off for a 5 year stint at club fed.
My idea is to apply in Illinois for an expungement of the criminal record, and failing that seek a pardon from the Governor of Illinois. Short of that, give up the idea of getting that Florida Conceal Carry License.
I wish you well in 2020.
