    Default Need some facts

    So I have a record as an adult. The basics are, I have 2 M2's on my record and a DUI from when I was 18-19 two separate incidents both involving driving when I shouldn't. The one is a fleeing and the second is unsworn false identification to a law enforcement officer during a traffic stop. Now my question is this: I've read articles saying I'm not allowed to purchase a firearm, and I've read articles saying I CAN purchase a firearm. My cop friend says he doesn't see why not, my gun nut friend says no way I'll get laughed out of the store. I'm looking for some concrete answers because everywhere I look I'm finding information that doesn't match up.

    I know people that have M2's and own and carry guns legally.

    Option 1 can land you in jail if you gamble and lose.

    Which is the perfect example of why you never take advice from people on the internet!!!

    Looks like option 2 is the way to go!

    The simple fact is you need the services of a competent lawyer well versed in firearm laws. It will be money well spent.

    Agreed.
    You need to talk to a lawyer that specializes in gun rights law.
    Not a cop, not a "gun nut", not a gun shop, and not random internet people.
    Do NOT try to buy a gun until you know for sure that you are legally able to do so.
    There are gun rights lawyers on this forum, and you can find gun rights lawyers by doing an internet search.
    Spend a few hundred dollars and get some reliable legal advice.
    Your freedom is worth the money.
    Why is it that when some robots are left in darkness they will seek out the light?
