    Probably. The best person to talk to about this is your local sheriff who issues permits. Only he/she would be able to determine that for you.

    You don't specify what state you're looking for. But in every state I know the requirements for, yes, that will prevent you from getting a concealed carry permit.

    depends on your state. Every state has an Attorney General, check with the AG's web site for the rules.
    Since it was a misdemeanor, chances are, and if you have no other record, you can petition the court to have the offence expunged.

    What you're reading here is pretty much what I was thinking. Lautenberg Act = pretty much a federal ban on firearms ownwership for anyone convicted of Domestic Violence. It was rather an embarrassment when it passed and the Police were not exempted; Police and Military have the highest rate of Domestic Violence.

    My advice: Get thee hence to a Firearms Attorney, posthaste. You need to talk to a specialist in Firearms Law in your state.

    Just so you know where you stand, I strongly, STRONGLY recommend you spend the price of a cheap gun on a thorough consultation with an experienced firearms attorney. It is always best to make an informed decision. Nobody here can tell another free person which laws to obey and which to ignore. You make your own choices. But it's always best to know the possible consequences of those choices.

    You will find some supporters here for carrying illegally, but I think most will encourage you to get it straightened out if possible.

    But hey..... Maybe being a felon is fun.......

    Freeloader,
    I strongly reccomend doing what others have advised you to do. Call an Attorney
    The last thing you want is an Felony Conviction on Weapon Charges, to go along with the Domestic violence Conviction.
