    further clarifies that this does not include "State offenses classified as misdemeanors and punishable by a term of imprisonment not to exceed two years."

    What does tis mean? it sounds like it contridicts it self is it one year or two years, I am confused obviously.

    Your government at work.

    I agree that it seems like a contradiction. I have no idea why they would define "more than one year" to mean "more than two years if it's a state offense", but that is indeed exactly what they've done.

    The one that stopped me was a involuntary commitment to a mental hospital aka 302.
    It was just for an evaluation when I was 16.

    If you have an expungement or pardon then it never happened.

    My friend (Yes. My friend. NOT code for me. MY record is perfectly clean.) at age 17, was charged with a felony, but they dropped those charges and he was charged with a misdemeanor. I showed him the chart, asked what class it was, he says it was most likely a class 3 misdemeanor. According to him, his charge doesn't fit that sub-section list of charges in the UFA that prohibit firearm posession.

    I can't find anythng suggesting that his second amendment rights have been affected at all. I wanted to get a second opinion, so I figured I'd ask this here.

    I know of no such provision in Pa. law. Are you talking fed or Pa.? If Pa. can you provide a citation to law or to how this is done?
