Expungement in this situation will be in the discretion of the court. The fact that ten years have elapsed will improve his chances. In addition, the court is interested in actual effects the conviction is having rather than fear of possible future effects.

    Yes, the charges can be "expunged" and 'His', (whomever "HE" is), civil rights to do all these things can restored. However, when he applies for a firearm permit the charge will still be seen. However, due to the nature of the charge it is my opinion that he will be able to obtain a permit to own a firearm and keep at home.
