Restoration Of Gun rights 2 Answers as of September 13, 2012

I have a felony assault conviction from 1999. As well as a domestic misdemeanor from around 2004. In Michigan, you are allowed to ask for a restoration of gun rights after 5 years pertaining to a felony. However I'm told the domestic will void me from owning a firearm. However, I see nothing in the Michigan Penal code that makes reference to this "federal" ban on domestic convictions. Is it possible that Michigan does not recognize this federal law?
