    You should seek the advice of an attorney in this matter..

    But for your entertainment he following link may be important, especially page 6 (referred to as the Lautenburg Ammendment)

      Very generally, if you're convicted of Domestic Violence anywhere, you're prohibited from purchasing, possessing, owning a firearm or ammunition. The prohibition is a matter of Federal Law.

          Makes no difference. Had you been convicted of a Domestic Violence crime, you 'd be prohibited from purchasing a firearm. The Lautenburg Ammendment is Federal legislation, and is applicable in all fifty states.

            That is what I thought.11 years ago I was arrested for Domestic Violence and spent 48 hours in jail.After I got out of jail and went back to court my ex-wife had a restraining order placed against me for a year.During this time I wasn't allowed to have my guns or buy any more.After the year was up I got to get my guns back.Since then I have purchased 2 shotguns,2 rifles,and 3 handguns.The point is I have wanted to be in law enforcment for the past few years.Now,after posting on the "Ask a Cop" forum awhile back I was told that if I was convicted I couldn't be an Officer.I went to the Court House and the lady said that she thought I had been convicted.I have never been in any trouble with the law in any way before this or after this.I really want to be a Police Officer.If I was convicted I would like to know what I can do to have all this changed?If anyone can point me in the right direction I would be very greatful.Thank You all very much for your time.

              Were you or were you not convicted of the domestic assault?

              I don't agree with your opinion, but I respect its straightforwardness in terms of wrongness.

                Bottom line is this if you were CONVICTED of DV(any crime against a current or former lover or even family) you have 0 chance of getting hired in LE. You wont be able to have a firearm as this will be ILLEGAL for you. Plus it paints a negative picture of you as being out of control. You would be perceived as a liability to any agency in LE.

                  Being arrested is not a conviction. I know it was 11 years ago but you should remember a court date with testimony before a judge. If that didnt happen your wife/GF did not followthrough with the case or some other circumstance. That would explain why you are still able to buy guns.

                    The arrest, combined with a temporary restraining order, are likely the nails in the coffin for a career in LE. You can look into it, based on the issue of whether you were convicted or not, but I doubt it.
                    Seriously, the only reason I wanted to be a cop was so I could post anywhere on this forum.

                      That is what I would like to know.The Lady I spoke to at the court house didn't act like she really knew either.

                        You need to have a criminal background check run on you......that will show whether it was a conviction, or just an arrest......

                        Your local PD MIGHT be able to do it, otherwise you will have to pay a private company to do it for you......

                          I remember going to court before a judge.I do not remember being convicted.I was told by my attorney that I couldn't have my guns for 1 year.After that year was up I recieved a letter saying I could have my guns back and I have had them ever since.I have even been to the Sheriffs office 3 times and gotten permits to buy 3 different handguns?????

                            Federal Laws Prohibit It.
                            Being a good street cop is like coming to work in a wet suit and peeing in your pants. It's a nice warm feeling, but you're the only one who knows anything has happened.

                              When the law first came out, there was a Dallas PD who had 15-20 yrs of service. The officer had been convicted of Assault By Contact-Family Violence against his teenage son(same a traffic ticket) several yrs prior to the law be enacted. He just paid the ticket to be done with it. Well, when the law was enacted the officer was stripped of his gun and placed in the jail until he retired.
