Domestic abuse is not a felony

In my state (Ky) a domestic can get a permit holders permit pulled. But I don't think it will not allow them to purchase. But I have no real reference for that.

OK- from the start- I am not a lawyer. If you need legal advice, see a lawyer, not an internet forum- since NONE of us will be sitting in the cell beside you.

Having said that, as I understand the FEDERAL law on this- If you have been CONVICTED of a crime of Domestic Violence- misdemeanor or felony, it is illegal for you to possess a firearm.

Period.

No "for 5 years" or any such thing.

Period. No. uh-uh. Nope. Nyet. Nein. Not ever. Unless you get a pardon from the Governor or President.

Not a pistol, not a rifle, not a shotgun, not a round of ammo.

This question was off the YouTube channel of IraqVet. I just heard them debate it and was wondering.

It's serious enough that in the military, a member who has a domestic violence conviction, cannot stand armed watches. They can't qualify with firearms. Therefore retention in the military may be pretty short after a domestic violence conviction.

On the 4473, question 11, section I (Indigo), "Have you ever been convicted in any court of a misdemeanor domestic violence?"

This is a QUALIFYING question, is you answer YES you can NOT buy a firearm. I have turned down many customers because of this.
