Well, it couldn't be any worst than the situation you're in now: not having a CHL.

#13. Have you been convicted of a crime(s) that involves physical contact or threat of physical contact with a family member?
Explanation: 10yrs ago, I had an ex-spouse with whom I was not living at the time (ie, not a family member). I made an off-the-cuff remark to her that got me in some legal trouble, resulting in a misdemeanor (?) conviction on AR PC XX.YY for making a threat (case # XYZ).
At worst, you get denied your CHL.
