If there was no domestic violence and there are no felonies there are no reasons you cannot exercise your Second Amendment Rights with firearm purchase, possession or ownership
The probation is over and so are the terms and conditions of that probation
The dismissal of the protective order should also remove it from your record. However, note, that they can deny a CCL to anyone who has had a protection order within 3 years of the CCL application
So you want to be certain that when you get the dismissal you also request to have it removed from your record.
What is involved in the dismissal of the po? I do not even know where my ex-wife or her sister are. The funny thing is, that my ex lifted the order on her children, not mine, but kept in on herself. I got my OSBI check a few days ago, and it only showed an obstruction of a court order, but the court disposition side was blank. When doing the NCIC or NICS checks, with the violation show up, or just the obstruction?
Whatever the court record has will come up on the NCIC
And if you are saying you are not seeing the violation, then it is not reported on the court record
When you go to your hearing to have the PO dismissed you have to show that you are not a threat to the person or persons
You can explain that you have no idea where she even lives nor do you cae
care. You are not threat and never have been a threat and you are not even sure why it was issued
Are there any forms I need to take with me? I thought I'd take the OSBI report and a family photo of me, my wife, and two daughters, one of which we just adopted one of them. Will it mater if the report says that I was charged with a felony, but it was reduced to a misdemeanor regarding the b and e? Can you tell me why the judge might have not entered the violation of protective order, but just the obstruction charge, just curious. The violation was because I sent a letter regarding the step kids welfare, but nothing threatening or abusive.
If it was a felony, then reduced the reduced charge should be reflected.
I have no idea why the court did not document the violation. But if it is not on the record, it cant be revealed
Okay, so they can't ask, what was the obstruction charge when i go to purchase a firearm? When I answer the questions on the form, do i check "no" when it asks if I have ever been charged with domestic violence or have had a protective order filed against me?
You would answer NO to the domestic violence, if it is not logged as such in the court records. Also you would have to state that you had a PO but it was dismissed. You may have to wait that 3 years I was telling you about with the Dismissal before you can apply - as I stated, they will not issue a CCL unless it has been 3 years
Okay, but what about when buying a firearm?
You should be able to buy a firearm - but you would not be able to CCL until dismissed for 3 years or the PO
Purchase, however, should be no problem
Okay, so after the po's are dismissed, I need to request they be removed from my record, after that, I need to wait 3 years for the ccl. When answering questions on the gun purchase forms, I need to answer yes, on the protective order question, but also state that they were dismissed.
That is correct
