HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.When you refer to the 10 year ban - by what was that imposed?Were you charged with a misdemeanor under PC 246.3 or as a felony?
Thank you.That's interesting that as a misdemeanor that does not carry a possible sentence of MORE than 1 year would also have a gun ban.
Yes. I am looking at my research now.
I am not finding any statutes that allow a person with a 10 year gun ban to petition the court to have the ban vacated.
I suggest, you could apply for a Pardon and if you get the pardon, then petition for expungment.Now, you can petition for expungment without the pardon, but that will not vacate the conviction and thus the 10 year ban
But if you apply for an get the Pardon, that essentially forgives the crime. That would be the only way I can see the ban could be lifted - via a pardon.
