      Why Was My Gun Purchase Denied?

      Several common reasons for gun purchase denials

      Before someone can restore their gun rights or appeal a denial, they have to first determine what is causing the denial. This is not always as simple as it seems and sometimes there are multiple problems that all must be resolved.

      Here are several of the most common reasons for gun purchase denials:

      Reason 1: Inaccurate Records


      One very common reason for a gun purchase denial is incorrect or inaccurate records.  Gun purchases are always denied based upon state or federal level records. You will not be denied a firearm purchase because of an incorrect court or police record if the state and federal records are accurate.  However, incorrect state or police records generally mean that the state or federal records are also incorrect.

      Furthermore, even if federal records, such as the FBI report and FBI/ATF NICS database, are incorrect, you will not necessarily be denied a gun purchase as long as your state record is correct.  FBI records are generally only the cause of denials for out-of-state convictions. The state record of your criminal history is known as the Department of Justice Criminal History Record, also called a DOJ report or a livescan.

      Reason 2: Felony Convictions & Domestic Violence Convictions


      A felony conviction or a misdemeanor domestic violence conviction results in a California and federal gun ban.  Domestic violence convictions include any offense which is committed against a girlfriend/boyfriend, spouse, or ex or a child of yours or of a significant other which involves touching or the threat of touching.

      There are also other California offenses which can cause a 10 year ban.  Certain juvenile offenses can trigger a ban until you reach the age of 30.  

      Lifeback Legal can help you figure out if you are under a firearm ban and what it will take to restore your gun rights.

      Reason 3: Other Gun Bans


      You can also be denied for being a drug addict, a fugitive from justice, for having been committed to an institution for mental health treatment, or for being dishonorably discharged from the military.  Currently, obtaining a medical marijuana card or legally purchasing medical marijuana does not prohibit you from purchasing a firearm in California. This is not the case throughout the United States. It is possible that the federal government could change this in the future and institute a 1-year drug addict ban after you obtain a marijuana card.  Lifeback Legal closely monitors changes in the law, as we understand this is a major concern for many people.

      California is one of the few states which allows for you to run a firearms eligibility check prior to going to a gun store.  While these checks are not definitive, they will generally work to let you know if you should be addressing an issue prior to purchasing a gun.  Lifeback Legal can complete a thorough firearm check in our office to verify if any bans apply to you.

      How Can I Restore My Gun Rights?

      Begin the process of restoring your gun rights by signing up online today. No wait, no hassle.


      It is a common misconception that an expungement will restore your gun rights. Rather, an expungement in California has zero effects on your gun rights. However, certain types of offenses are eligible for relief similar to an expungement which can restore your gun rights.  The best mechanism for gun rights restoration is a court-ordered reduction of an offense from a felony to a misdemeanor. This will not work for certain bans which apply to misdemeanor convictions.

      We know it can be difficult to know where to start. We can make a game plan for you. Contact us and we can assess your case and create a road map to your gun rights restoration.

      Reductions


      Lifeback Legal has obtained many reductions for clients eager to restore their gun rights. Successful cases come from ensuring you are working with an experienced team and have continued leading a law-abiding lifestyle. If you have a record of serious offenses, your case may have a lower chance of success.

      The two main types of reductions that we recommend are the traditional section 17 reduction and the Proposition 64 reduction. Traditional reductions work for numerous felonies, while Proposition 64 reductions only work for marijuana-related convictions.  Because it can be complicated to verify eligibility, Lifeback Legal’s founding attorney Mr. Shea Randall will check if your case is eligible for reduction. Reach out to us today at (888) 751-5329 and we can expeditiously screen your case for eligibility.

      Pardons and Certificates of Rehabilitation


      We only recommend that you attempt a California Pardon or Certificate of Rehabilitation for the purpose of gun rights restoration if you are not eligible for reduction. While our current Governor Brown has granted numerous pardons, most Governors do not. Even if you successfully obtain a Certificate of Rehabilitation, the Governor must still grant the pardon to get your gun rights back.  Do keep in mind, the Governor can grant a pardon that specifically does not restore your gun rights if he or she chooses.

      Incorrect Court Records


      If court records are incorrect, you have to request the clerk update the records and the Department of Justice records.  If the Clerk refuses, you can sue to force an update and challenge the record directly with the Department of Justice.

      Unreported Dispositions


      An unreported disposition is when a police department or court never report that your case was closed.  Having what looks like an open case can cause the Department of Justice to believe that you may have a conviction which prohibits your firearm rights.  This is a common problem.

      A police department may forget to report that your case was a detention only or that the case was dropped.  If this occurs, you have to complete an administrative review process with the department in question to change the disposition.  If they refuse, you can sue the department to force an update. You can also challenge the incorrect record directly with the Department of Justice as a last resort.  

      Incorrect DOJ Records


      If DOJ records are incorrect, and it is verified that the submitting agencies have all submitted the information required for the records to be corrected, you can complete an administrative review process with the DOJ to request an update.  If they refuse, you can sue to force an update.

      Sometimes, even if the submitting agency record is not corrected, you can still submit a challenge directly to the Department of Justice.  We do not recommend going to the Department of Justice as the first step because they can be very slow at processing challenge requests.

      Lifeback Legal is experienced at targeting the correct agencies and getting records updated in a timely process.  Our skilled attorneys can handle the entire process for you to ensure the update gets done right the first time.
