Default CCW questions...

So, i was reading the CCW application and i came across a couple questions that i believe i need to answer yes to. The most important one being that a little over 3 years ago i recieved a deferred sentence on a felony. I was wondering, before i go through all the classes and pay all that money, if it is even worth trying for. If so, what Is the cutoff point. Is it how many times you answer yes, or if you answer yes to certain questions, or what exactly? Its all a little confusing to me. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It may vary from state to state, however, a felony conviction will generally be a disqualifier. It's usually does not a matter of how many yes answers but which questions you answer yes to. In my state(TN) a felony conviction is a definite stopper. However, in your situation, an expungement means a court has ordered that it never happened and all records are "supposed" to be destroyed. This depends on how well the various record keeping agencies do their jobs and follow the court order to expunge. You should always keep a copy of the order of expungement because someday it is bound to show up on a records check somewhere and the only way to prove it is to have the order. Good luck.

what he said. If it's been expunged, then it's supposed to be almost like it never happened. Roll with it.

Sounds to me like you'll be fine to go through with it. Answer "NO" to the question "have you been convicted of a felony" and don't mention a word to them about it.
It will likely show up on your record in some way, shape, or form when the background check is done. It's pretty black and white though. Do you have a felony on your record now? No. You'll be good.
I will say though, it whatever caused the felony had anything to do with a gun or violence, someone somewhere will find a valid reason to tell you no.

You can always contact your issuing agency and check with them. But, as others have said, it never happened.... Right?
