Still considered a violent or aggressive natured crime. That's the only reason I could see for the hold.

Probably! Any excuse they can find to keep you from getting a gun they (the progressive government) will use!!!

Anyone who has been convicted of either felonies or domestic violence/battery is ineligible to receive or possess a FOID card. Since you were never convicted, you cannot be denied. A guilty plea is a conviction, too.

If you were not found guilty (or pled guilty) there shouldn't be a problem. If they should happen to hassle you over it an attorney can usually have something like that removed fairly easy.
You said you were in High School. Were you under 18? Also you can have a records check done on yourself with the city/county it occurred in and find out yourself.

I just checked into this and found out they say the wait on the FOID is well over 2 months.

It is the alias you used -- "'tater Salad." BIG red flag.

7 years ago I got charged with & plead guilty to a misdemeanor concealed weapon charge (had a switchblade). ever since then, my background check takes about 20 minutes compared to the 5 or so it takes everyone else, the FFL gets transferred from the BATFE to the FBI & an agent there makes the final call.

just picked up a gun today & went through the same thing again. I would think that if I have that kind of black eye on my record & I can still get a gun, you should be in the clear too.
