Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Good afternoon,I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.
1. Was the original charge perhaps a felony and then reduced to a misdemeanor in a plea agreement?
2. Have you ever been charged with or convicted of domestic violence?
While a misdemeanor conviction for a firearm violation does not automatically prevent you from purchasing a firearm, it is a red flag to the feds and the holdup is almost certainly related to the conviction and they are simply looking at your application with more scrutiny.
You will just need to be patient and allow the feds to do their more thorough investigation.
