I believe that many people would be suprised at just how easy it is to be banned for ever. I can't find it here with my phone but 3
of the 4 curcuit courts that have heard arguments have ruled that ANY contact constitutes a life time gun ban, even diminimus or accidental.
BATFE memo says if the police report says you acted with boisterousness or were being excessively loud while being arrested in a DV situation for disorderly conduct, lifetime ban for you. That goes back to the violence court ruling but who has the money to get that far?
