how long is someone's record held over their head? when attempting to purchase a firearm how far back do they check on the backround check? (don't know if it makes a difference but i'm asking about VA) do they care what you did when you were a minor? or do they stop caring if the record is over 10 years old? some insite would be greatly helpful? and also is the attempted buyer arrested if they are found to be "denied"?
