My friend has a delay in his NICS check right now and is a bit worried. He tried to purchase a gun after many, many years of not even owning any firearms. I believe he had a court restraining order issued against him during a rough divorce trial a while back. He was issued a restraining order, but never had any conviction of any sort and is squeaky clean. His wife made all types of false accusations during the divorce trail and tried to remove custody of his kids , etc. Assuming the restraining order is expired or not active, would there be any issues with him acquiring the firearm? He is in the state of Washington. The restraining order was issued I think over a decade ago during his divorce in King County and he currently lives in Pierce County today. He told me the restraining order was never renewed and is no longer active as of 3 years ago. Any information people can give me would be helpful.
