    Cops are not the best source for legal advice. I would check with a attorney. Personally, I think she can own.

    Why not have her apply for a PPP and see what happens..

    If it was only a misdemeanor, she still has her 2nd amendment rights. It takes a felony to get those taken away.

    a PPP is a pistol purchasing permit. Go to your local sheriff's office, and fill out an application for said PPP, give them $5 and they'll tell you the next day whether or not you can legally purchase a gun (which I'm 99.99% positive she can)

    PPP= Pistol Purchase Permit. (Although it is more correctly a Pistol Transfer Permit as one is required whether the handgun is bought or gifted)

    If you can get it, yes. Of course, it will take longer to get, and probably to find out for sure if she can purchase.

    She might have to jump through some hoops to get a CHP but to purchase she should be fine.

    Best bet is to go to the courthouse and see EXACTLY what the charge and conviction was for. And take it from there.

    I believe she should be able to get a PPP, based on the NC Laws. An additional option would be to go to the original court where she was charged. If she has had a clean record since then, she can petition the original court/judge to nulify the charge. most courts have a request for case nulification process. It is time consuming, but if she has not gotten into trouble (speeding tickets won't matter) she may be able to have it removed completely. You can do it with a lawyer or not.

    You're forgetting misdemeanor domestic violence laws. While not applicable in this situation, you will lose your 2A rights.

    DVs can be nulified too, if and only IF, one does not have multiple DVs and has served their time, AND kept their nose clean. It is possible.

    Check the statutes to be sure. If there are questions you may want to talk to a lawyer. Just going for the gusto and applying for the permit if you think there is a problem may have you answering some questions.

    And the ONE bit of advice that is perhaps the FIRST ting we should have told you (but nobody did...) is that you might want to talk to a lawyer once you get all the court records. Don't believe anything the court officials or your local LEOs tell you.

    Find an attorney in your area that specializes in firearms law. A simple consultation to straighten this out should be well under $100...

    Well, yeah. There is that whole "Cops and officials will lie to you thing."
