A] You're seeking legal advice. As I've clearly stated, I'm not an attorney.

B] Since you've already, the best I can decipher from your message, "applied for one," you're probably only asking whatever you're asking because you're simply being impatient and are asking me to handicap your chances of success. Such a request is beyond the scope of this topic.

C] I'm compelled to observed that it's apparent that you haven't wasted any of those 25 years since the arson change... whatever the court disposition since you didn't specify... at getting an education in basic written language.

Patience, Marc... if your application is approved, then fine. If it is denied (there should be a cause included with the denial), then talk to an attorney.

Whatever you do, don't waste time on asking vague questions on the Internet.

I can answer questions about Handguns, Rifles, Ammunition, the Firearms Industry, the "gunzine game," practical accessories for self-defense (CCW) handguns; rumor control on firearms myths, errata on the "gunshop grapevine."

I am NOT an Attorney, and nothing I provide here should be relied upon as legal advice. Therefore, please do NOT make inquiries about Criminal Justice issues... this is the Second Amendment topic.

Nor do I do "Private Consultations." Want to made it "private," retain an attorney.
