I was convicted of domestic violence five years ago. It was a misdemeanor. That’s all that is on my record. Can I get it expunged and restore my gun rights? I want them for self protection as well as hunting with family. Please do not answer if you are a gun control supporter. Thanks!!

For the record… I’m not some white trash wife beater. I’m 25 and female and was in a very abusive marriage. There was no proof of me "hurting my ex husband" he was mad because he said it took me too long to get home from Albertson’s, so I must have been cheating. He flat out said he would plot his revenge and two weeks later I got a letter from the prosecutor to show up for court. The report was made that night (he beat me up so I stayed at my sisters house) I was terrified and deathly afraid of my ex husband. I had never been in trouble with the law, so I took a conviction and received 12 months of "probation".

The only way you loose your American right to bear arms is if you are convicted of a felony. Even then you may have it restored after successfully completing probation, if it is a non violent crime. I am telling you this as a 2x convicted felon that goes hunting with guns in my possession legally. every year.

    Unless you have a lot of money for a powerful lawyer, you are in for a long, uphill battle.
    Good luck.

    In most states not all, domestic violence
    is a crime any violent crime will prohibit
    you from getting gun rights back but you
    can try. Good luck.
