It depends. If a gun restriction arising from the domestic violence and/or battery was placed on you, you probably cannot own or possess a firearm. These gun restrictions usually last for about ten years and cannot be terminated by way of an expungement.

    NO. NO. NO. For you to own, possess, control, or even to touch any firearm or ammunition is a federal and state felony with mandatory prison time. That means not even being in the presence of them in a building or car or other area where they are accessible to you. Records are forever, and there is no clearing these.
