Loss of Your Right to Carry a Gun
It is unlawful for a person convicted of domestic violence to possess or carry a firearm. Even if you have a conceal and carry permit or carrying a weapon is part of your job, the law prohibits you from having one. Once you have been convicted, you will never be able to restore your right to carry a gun. Obviously, a domestic violence conviction has drastic consequences for people working in law enforcement.
No Expungement for Domestic Violence Matters
A conviction for domestic violence cannot be expunged from your criminal record. This means that, once you have been convicted, it will be on your record for the rest of your life. Having a conviction on your record can haunt you forever. It can prevent you from getting a job, applying for certain licenses, obtaining credit, and more.
