I was arrested that night and spent the night in jail; however, I was not read my Miranda rights, nor have I ever gone to court for this issue, nor was I given a court date. I am now twenty years old. I the past two months I have moved to California and have decided to join the military.

I am attempting to purchase a hand gun and during the

I am attempting to purchase a hand gun and during the background check there is an arrest record from 1984 for a class 4 misdemeanor assault. I recall that incident and it was a fist fight with my brother, and that charges were never filed by the DA. The Oregon State police are not able to find clear evidence of the no charges - all they see is the arrest. I have contacted the arresting municipality and they have no records from that far back..Can OSP deny the sale of the weapon based on not being able to find clear evidence that there is no conviction? I thinking it is the opposite - they would need to find clear evidence of a conviction before being able to 'Deny'. Even with a conviction I am thinking this case would not meet the standard of Domestic Violence since we were both adults and not living in the same household...Can you confirm or correct my thoughts?
