Ca 10 yr gun prohibition??
 
I was convicted of felony pc246.3 ( negligent discharge of firearm ):( in CA in 2010. I just got it reduced to misdemeanor this year 2011.
CA gave me a 10 yr gun prohibition starting the day of conviction.
I am resident of Arizona now, I have no other charges.
Will the federal gov.t deny me a gun purchase because I have a state prohibition in CA????:confused: Please comment if your familiar with this. THank You

You can have it reduced and expunged by the same judge that sentenced you of the crime. Sounds like you have reduced already now just get it expunged. you might not have to get it expunged. im not sure. you can also check on doj website and run your dro's to check eligibility.

1.) You got it reduced to a misemeanor. Good. SAVE THAT PAPERWORK.

2.) Get that misdemeanor expunged. SAVE THE PAPERWORK.

3.) The CA 10yr prohibition is for CA only and is separate from other matters. If you are legal to own guns in AZ and are in AZ the CA prohibition does not apply there.

4.) It may take time for FedGov to understand the above and you may get an initial Denial. Also CA DOJ may mistakenly think the 10yr prohibition applies outside CA too and tell that to someone and screw things up.

THanks for the comments.
I have been exhausting resources a lot to figure this out.
I am on summary probation but have a lawyer to petition early termination next January 2012. I also planning to expunge my case.
I have been reading up a lot on the FBI's national instant criminal check system and read that they update the status on an individual by 30 days or less.
Just had doubts the FBI's NICS would deny or delay me a firearm purchase.
You can't get in trouble if you get denied right? Thanks

Do not confuse expungment with 17(b) reduction.

17(b) resentence-reduction to misdemenaor is your key.

Expungment is just nicety for this, but you might as well do it. There's a chance that could help accelerate paperwork.

SAVE ALL YOUR PAPERS AND KEEP COPIES OF THEM. Know all your case #s - the court may have a hard time searching.

Providing they have properly been supplied by the city/county DOJ it's OK.

But you may very well have to clean this up with CA DOJ and have a letter stating such to handle an FBI denial.

Do not assume state computer recordskeeing/computers and intercommunication work well.

(You oughta see the data quality of various aspects of the CA assault weapons database.)

If they have correct info they'll be fine. It's unlikely they'll immediately get the correct info and this info may need some prodding to release - remember there are time lags and due to budget cuts stuff like this gets left to last.

It is illegal to buy a gun if you are a prohibited person (felon).

If your CA felony has been cleaned up and properly reduced to misdameanor via 17(b) in California then you are no longer a felon.

Now, you are prohibited in CA from owning a gun [unless you can get the judge to reduce that part of sentence] but that does not affect AZ.

@ CKY how exactly do you check eligibility on DOJ website?

Great, I just simply want my gun rights restored.
My lawyer was telling me I'm banned for life because I was convicted " once" of a felony.
But I knew all about 17(b) reduction eligibility.
I got it accomplished, so I think I'm just gonna be patient and finish out my summary probation.

Illegal aliens get their convictions expunged daily by Superior Court judges so they can avoid the immigration consequences of their state court convictions. That logic should serve you well.
