Legally, if the restraining order is lifted, you should be able to own a firearm. However, in practice, my experience has been that depending upon the basis for the restraining order, the restrained person will NOT pass the background check required to purchase the firearm.

If there is a court order terminating the restraining order. You would need to get a certified copy of it and submit it to the law enforcement office where it was originally submitted. They then should remove it from their records.

There would be a 10 year ban after probation was completed, if you plead to a specified offense.? If the restraining order was lifted, I am not sure why you were denied unless you have a prior felony.

It sounds as though the order terminating the original restraining order never made it into the system. I would get a copy of that order and talk to local law enforcement about how to get the fact of the lifting of the restraining order into the CLETS system.

You cannot own a gun while there is a restraining order on you. If there is none, then it appears nothing prevents you from applying to obtain one.

    If denied there should be no restriction. But Paperwork could still be in system. You may need to go to court to get order lifting restriction.
