Will I still be able to buy a gun?
As some of you here know from my recent thread here,I was arrested and charged with two felonies recently. The state decided not to file charges against me but I still have an arrest record for this incident.
My question is I'm in Florida and our background checks for gun purchases are done by FDLE,will they get a copy of the court documents stating no charges were filed against me? Or do I have to have my attorney send them to them? What would happen right now if I tried to buy a gun,would I be denied or conditionally approved?
I'm curious because my twin brother had to wait 20 minutes for his background check to be approved the other day when he bought a handgun.,he usually gets an instants approval. I know I probably won't get an instant approval like before but can I be denied a gun purchase being I wasn't convicted of anything and am not prohibited from from owning a gun?
