here it is, as I spoke to NICS today, they are the ones that clear firearm purchases, thru out the nation, feds.
I tried to buy a rifle a few months ago from a dealer, the sale was delayed by NICS.feds brady law.
I live in arizona,
in my home state , california,I had no problems buying firearms.
this was what they said,
in 1966 when i was 15 I was convicted in juv court of a first offense , indecent exposure. first offense is a misdemeanor in cal.
the court sent me to CYA which is state institution,as the county did not have ability to treat this, ( therapist and counselors )
there were others in the CYA for minor offenses also,
to the FBI/NICS this they think is a felony. as it was, I was, sent to the state.and not the county.
this is a shock to find out after 40 years of being a perfect citizen I may now be reclassified as a felon.
even if i have my juv records sealed, it may not affect the FBI records I was told.
I had contacted the CYA about this, they have no record of this being a felony, and stated that this crime is a misdemeanor in california.
now, I fear a raid by FBI
as I own many firearms all legally purchased in california.
any advice appreciated.
