    CCW permit story am I being B.S.'ed?

    So I'm talking to a guy the other day and the subject of guns comes up and here is where it gets interesting,to me anyways. So the guy proceeds to tell me that hes been into gun for a while BUT when he was younger he got into some trouble with the law.

    He then tells me he had a felony record,but because it was so long ago he requested and received a pardon from the Governor,and his record was expunged as a result thus allowing him to obtain a carry permit/own a gun again. Now I'll admit I'm no legal scholar but is this even possible? He did show me a Florida carry permit for what its worth.

    My nephew has a felony from over 10 years ago. It was a pot charge. He got his expundged but they sent a big read note along with his info that said " This does not allow you to own a firearm"..
    Not saying it cant be done, just didn't work for him.
    Prepare for the worst and hope it never happens

    Anything is possible, and this has probably happened more than once. It all depends upon the offense, the age of the offender and the state laws

    I have a friend who got in trouble (felony) 25 years ago after he got out of the army. Got arrested for some kind of assault.No jail time but it was still on his record. It was so long ago he had forgotten about it. They turned his ccw license down when they ran the check. He had to go before a judge and tell his story and got it expunged. He now has his ccw license.

    I know things like this are possible...and they can happen, but why would anyone talk about their CCW permit and their 'felony history' in the same breath?
    If it were me, I'd keep my mouth shut about 'historical data'...I'm just sayin'...

    I have to agree with retsupt99 on this, seems like TMI.

    As previously mentioned, it probably varies from state to state. According to a local attorney friend, in Kansas it is possible to have felonies/misdemeanors removed from your record after a period of time ... and for a fee, of course. The only exceptions are murder or treason.

    People get pardons all the time.

    Not connected people, just people. My office does several every year, mostly for people who did stupid things, finished out their time/probation and gone on to be decent people.

    Usually it's "I was a thug when I was a kid, but went to prison, got out, grew up and have a family. I've now worked a steady job for the past 15 years, gotten married and haven't been in trouble since that time...I'd like to not walk around with a felony record..."

    They apply for a pardon, go to a hearing, and if the pannel recomends a pardon, then the Governor signs off and they get their rights back.

    Most of them are people you'd probably want as neighbors.

    Not sure I want to live next to felons as neighbors...

    By the way this reminds me of when Florida was found to be issuing permits to felons.

    Thumper I like you B.S. meter also yeah I figured the guy was either trying to sound important or he just likes telling his life story to everyone he meets. It did strike me kinda funny but made for interesting conversation still the same.

    Yes it is possible if the pardon restores all rights.
