My name is ***** ***** I am an experienced criminal
It's not possible for me to know exactly why you were turned down. It may be, for example, that someone with the same name has a felony record. Or it may be that your credit card
transaction was declined and it has nothing to do with your second amendment rights.
However, here are the reasons a gun
purchase would be automatically declined. You can find them in 18 USC 922(d), which I am quoting below:
(1) is under indictment for, or has been convicted in any court
of, a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year;
(2) is a fugitive from justice
(3) is an unlawful user of or addicted to any controlled substance (as defined in section 102 of the Controlled Substances Act (21 U.S.C. 802));
(4) has been adjudicated as a mental defective or has been committed to any mental institution;
(5) who, being an alien—
(A) is illegally or unlawfully in the United States; or
(B) except as provided in subsection (y)(2), has been admitted to the United States under a nonimmigrant visa (as that term is defined in section 101(a)(26) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1101 (a)(26)));
(6) who has been discharged from the Armed Forces under dishonorable conditions;
(7) who, having been a citizen of the United States, has renounced his citizenship;
(8) is subject to a court order that restrains such person from harassing, stalking, or threatening an intimate partner of such person or child of such intimate partner or person, or engaging in other conduct that would place an intimate partner in reasonable fear of bodily injury to the partner or child . . .
(9) has been convicted in any court of a misdemeanor
crime of domestic violence
