Please before you answer just don't start criticizing me I know the choices I made were stupid and I have learned from them thank you. In 2005 I was arrested for criminal damage to property and was given 3 years probation,restitution and first offenders act. I completed it all in less than 3 years and was let off. In November of 2009 me and my wife were arrested for trumped up domestic violence charges against each other among other charges all of which were dropped in January by the asst D.A once she got our side of the story and saw the cops were overzealous. Of course DFCS got involved and are still involved with their witch hunt. In February of this year I tried to buy a shotgun for home protection guy runs background check and I get denied he can't tell me why because he doesn't know. So my question is 1. Is there some reason I wasn't able to get the gun? The first offenders act was supposed to erase my record. 2. How can I find out what if anything is on my record. I have a feeling since we had DV charges against us 2 months previous that it has something to do with me not being able to get the gun.
