    Default simple assault m2

    I am interested in buying a handgun and have a simple assault misdemeanor 2 charge on my record from 15yrs ago and have the following questions,
    1 Does this prevent me from owning a handgun?
    2 If so,can it be appealed or will having it expunged help?

    Any help in this matter will be appreciated

    thank you

    1. Doubtfully. See http://forum.pafoa.org/pennsylvania-...ml#post1436650. Assuming your case was in Pennsylvania, please look up your docket at http://ujsportal.pacourts.us/DocketSheets/CP.aspx and verify the grading. Also confirm whether you were convicted, which your statement of "have a simple assault misdemeanor 2 charge" does not make clear.
    2. What do you think there is to appeal? Also, if you were convicted, there is no opportunity for expungment. If you weren't convicted then having been charged with the crime is not under consideration for the prohibition.
