All of those are more than enough contact to get you banned for life from ever owning or touching a gun.
The vast majority of people think that a lifetime ban for DV means someone had cause pain, fear or leave a mark. Have you ever seen that corona beer commercial where the woman sprays her man with a lime for looking at a pretty girl? Read the code, jury instructions and caselaw for 243e in California, that is mistemeaner domestic violence that triggers a lifetime ban under the lautenberg amendment.
Very Interesting that Corona made such a commercial.
