Hello Jacustomer,1) The NICS check is made from the FBI data base and will go all the way back and reveal your felony. The data base will have more information than what you found on "beenverified" as your site is not an official one.2) No. While it's possible, you are unlikely to be arrested on the spot, but you will be told in no uncertain terms that you cannot purchase a weapon. 3) Yes, you can reapply for expungement and see whether you will get a different result if you've been out of difficulty for ten years. You can also get your gun rights back if you get a pardon from the governor, so you might as well do that too. It's free and you don't need a lawyer to get it done.
Here's the information that will tell you more about that.
thank you very much, i have done the expungement process before so i know what to do there. as for gun rights, the expungement process by itself isn't enough allow to clear this? so since the offense occured in oregon, but i now live in wyoming. do i need to get a pardon from the governors office in oregon or wyoming?
