    Like wow last year I tried to buy a gun and the question have you ever been convicted of a felony or crime punishable by one year in prison I said no since I only got probabtion for a misdeamnor 2 years apparently no one told me my gun rights were gone after that I filled out app didn’t get approved now 7 months later I’m being charged with a. 3rd degree misdeamnor and disorderly conduct like wtf I didn’t understand the question and I skimmed thru most of the questions. This crime is punishable by up to one year most likely probabtion but I’m hiring a lawyer since I’ve read this happens a lot and the prosecutor has to prove that I was deliberately trying to lie to law enforcement which I wasent I thought I could buy a gun I’m not a felon. Now I have charges prelimary set to August. I have a great job I’m thinking worst case what happens if I do get probation over a wrong question will I lose my job will other companies maybe local hire me maybe I’ll get unsupervised probation since i haven’t been in trouble in like 5 years for corruption of minors which I got 2 years probation. Should I tell my company now or wait and see what happens o read a lot of these cases get thrown out. It’s complete bs I can vote pay taxes and can’t have a gun because I let an underage girl drink at a party I had back in 2012. What are your guys opinion what should I do? I’m a reck right now like I didn’t see this coming I wasent trying to elude law enforcement like I knew they were gonna do a background check and all would show and I stuck around it’s just complete bs

    A misdemeanor, I wouldn't tell anyone. You must have bad luck cause its super rare for them to actually go after people like that. Unless they've done it multiple times

    I've applied and been denied twice. Never had them come after me. Just tell them the story I'm sure they'll see it was a mistake

    And like the disorderly conduct no big deal but says I was disturbing business knowing I couldn’t buy a gun like wtf? If I knew I couldn’t buy a gun why the hell would I try? No one ever told me I could own a gun when I plead guilty to corruption of minors furnishing.

    Mine was in California so just as strict. Are the feds prosecuting you or the state? State is probably hard up for cash and see it as an easy fine

    I answered no both times. 1st time was denied because something I did as a kid. I had to wait till I was 25 I think? 2nd time I knew I had a felony but like you thats how I read it, cause I didn't do any time so thought after I paid my fines, off probation and everything then 5 years later I tried. And found out its lifetime ban
