    Question about AZ and Firearm/CCW laws

    So I have a friend who long story short has a little mark on his record that is preventing him from purchasing another firearm until next year, much less get his CCW that he wants and should have. he then can get it exspunged then due to the nature of it all. either way he has been talking about moving away from crappy MI for some time now and he is under the impression that once he moves to AZ, which is where he wants to that he would be able to get a permit to carry.

    Is this true? I am a bit lost on this fact........

    Please help. I would hate to see a good friend move away under false pretences, although anywhere has to be better then MI for money and jobs!!!!

    Awfully vague. Without knowing what exactly is the "little mark" that is preventing him from firearms ownership it's tough to say. Here are the AZ requirements: http://www.azccw.com/requirements.htm

    i think it was a charge that went down to a DV charge, which wa not what ws supposed to be on his record, however someone somehow messed up. he hs tried over and over to get it removed as evryone that was involvd n this poces like I think I remeber what you are talking about, but let me check into it!" so that is what I have heard and this guy is a good guy and if he waits until next july he can get it exspunged from his record next year and has had no other offenses since then.

    now of course this offense is on everyones "do not issue" list. I guess sometimes people just get mixed up with the "wrong" people.

    Contact AZ DPS or an AZ attorney. I think once disqualified for CCW, always disqualified for CCW.
    If total government control equals safety, why are prisons so dangerous?

    Vermont, the CCW friendly state

    Suggest he move to Vermont, no permit required, in state/out of state, concealed... no matter.

    www.packing.org look up Vermont, great state to visit too!

    If your friend had a DV-class charge, even as a misdemeanor, he's not going to be able to get a CCW anywhere. A record that is expunged is only expunged from the court, or "sealed". If he was convicted of the crime, then it stays on the record that law enforcement will see, even if expunged through the courts. Law enforcement -- the people that do the background checks -- can see any and all convictions even if you were a juvenile when it happened.

    If it was a mistake on the exact charge that should have been issued (e.g. disorderly conduct vs. disorderly conduct - DV), then he needs to contest that with the state authority on criminal records, usually the state police or DPS for your state. It's kind of like a credit history, you can contest something that's on there and they'll investigate it and change it or let it stand depending on the results of the investigation. The worst that they can do if he contests the charge is let it stand. Have him talk to the state police or state DPS to try to get it changed.

    Just remind him that it's still a DV-class charge if it was only a roommate or someone that stays over at his house for a couple days, it doesn't just have to be someone you're going out with or married to.

    Cheers.
