I got this friend, he's all around a really great guy. I was in boyscouts with him in my youth. Well he went on to college and did a little too much partying. He racked up 3 DWI's from the time I last saw him (12 years ago) to when I added him on facebook (2 years ago or so). He now can't buy guns even though he loves them. I can't help but feel pitt on the man because he hasn't had a drop of alcohol in the last 2 and a half years, yet he is banned from owning firearms for the rest of his life. Im trying to look into ways he can have his felony expunged, I think it's a possibility but I'm not sure if even non-violent felons can have a felony expunged. He's been clean the whole time and cooperated with police everytime he got pulled over and did their FST's and blew into the breathalyzer. His probation should end in 2 1/2 years, he won't get a driver's license for a further 9 years or so. I think its a shame that he isn't allowed to own one for the rest of his life, especially since he lives in a rural part of the state in which police don't have the response time to quickly come to his defense should the need arise. He has a wife and will probably have children too, and I think as the laws go, even the mother can't have a gun in the same household that the felon lives in. I consider their family vulnerable without some way of getting the felony expunged. Are there any legal beagles on here that can help me provide my friend with some options?
