Ex felon wanting to buy my first firearm...

Hello pnwguns. I am 22 years old and during my first month of being 18 I got a felony class b for the distribution of marijuana. It was only 4 grams. I retained representation and still got screwed. I got a plea deal that would lower it to a class a misdemeanor 2 years after the conviction and then expungement a year after the reduction. I am in the process of getting the class a misdemeanor expunged now. I tried to buy a glock 17 over the counter and got denied because I said on the federal application I have had a felony. What do I do? How can I get my right back? I can't belive selling my friend a little weed when I was 18 has messed up my life this bad. Any and all help is appreciated

These forums have rather light traffic. Try at It's California-centric, but there are lots of non-Californians there.

there are some old threads on this topic on this thread. might be under Oregon, might be under Gun Rights.

Just look around. It's been discussed a bit here before.

Turns out this law can be kind of misleading. It doesn't give felons their rights back. It only lowers the crime of possession to a misdemeanor. He said the only way to restore your rights is to apply to have the felony expunged.

I know this is a pretty old thread, but anyone looking, as I did, for information on this topic may find it and wonder.

I understand why you answered that way, but why when you said the original crime has been lowered to a misdemeanor and then expunged. The crime therefor is not a felony........right???????

I'm surprised the gun store even tried to run your application if you answered yes. If in fact it was reduced to a misdemeanor,you should answer that question with a NO. Good luck.
