If someone purchases a gun at the store, they are registered as that gun's owner with the FBI. If that person later returns the gun they bought to the same store, will their name be taken off the FBI's list as that gun's owner? Thanks.

I was charged with Battery Domestic Violence against my

Hello.I was charged with Battery Domestic Violence against my boyfriend about 10 years ago. It was adjudication witheld. I had to do anger management classes and haven't had any trouble since. Even got my nursing license shortly after that.My question is, in Florida, I am not allowed to own a gun because of this correction? I assume I am not allowed to even shoot one at a gun range or anything. On top of all that, is there a way I can have those rights restored? It would be nice to be able to legally own a gun.Thank you for your help!

Friends daughter was arrested for being under the influence

Friends daughter was arrested for being under the influence (drunk driving), carrying a concealed weapon (a switchblade, I assume lockable in its open position), brandishing the weapon, and then threatening the guys who were apparently harassing her.Have read on the internet that her emotional reasons for at least two of these allegations matter to a jury.But we'd like to know what happens at the "pre-trial" and what are her options? Also is there any chance she will be let go with a warning? Somehow, we doubt this, but are the charges likely to be limited to misdemeanors?Any other advice besides hire an attorney sooner rather than latter so that there's time to talk things over with the prosecutor to hopefully reach some sort of an agreement prior to trial?
