Unfortunately, conviction for any crime related to domestic violence would permanently ban you from any ownership, possession or use of any firearm.
I am sorry to deliver this unpleasant news to you, but the federal law is very clear on this and if the law is violated, it would subject someone convicted of domestic violence to a mandatory 5 years in federal prison.
Do you have any related follow up questions?
Ok is there anyway to get this right back?
I noticed you tried to rate my answer.
What was your rating?
Well, the only way to get your rights restored under the current law is to file petition for a full pardon with the Governor's office.
If your petition is granted and a full pardon is issued, then your firearms rights would be restored.
not if you have already filed one and it was granted.
What was your adjudicated juvenile record for ?
Did the conviction happen in juvenile court?
then it would not be considered a conviction for the purposes of federal firearms ban.
Do you have any related follow up questions for me?
It would be a very good idea to consult and retain a local pardon law attorney to represent you in this process, as you do want to be able to have the highest possibility of success and the local attorney can make sure that the petition is completed and filed correctly and can further represent you in the process.
