    Default Disclosure of the Prior Denial of a Gun Permit

    My question involves criminal records for the state of: Washington DC

    Back in 2001 in Marlyalnd I tried to buy a firearm and found out I had a disqualifying item. In 2017 I got that item expunged and no longer have a disqualification. I now live in Washington DC and the firearm registration certificate it ask, have you been denied a gun registration certificate before? Do I put yes or no? How much does this effect the decision to allow me to be approved and would they still have this record?

    any help is appreciated

    You have told us that you were denied a gun permit. Thus the answer to the question, "have you been denied a gun registration certificate before", is "yes".

    If there is no space on the application form to provide an explanation, you should anticipate having to later explain why you were denied and why that denial is not relevant to your present application. If there is such a space, you can include your explanation in that space.

    Thank you Mr. Knowitall for your help.

    Yes, it does have a field for explanation.

    I noticed ATF form 4473 does not have this field but Washington DC gun registration has this field. Looks like on the federal level I'm good to go as I no longer have any disqualification, but DC can still block me based on my answer.

    No surprise there.
