cc application with arrest record(Posted by unclejhim on 2/17/13 at 11:00 am)
I am going to take the cc coarse and apply for a cc permit.Question I have is how does arrest record play into this. Anybody been granted a permit who was arrested in their youth? I'm talking misdemeanors.

Just being arrested will not matter. It is the convictions that matter. You can have an arrest for a felony and still get it depending on the disposition. If you were cleared of all charges, then you are good to go. Just go to your local police departmnet, or one in the jurisdiction where you were arrested and get your background check. Then take this paper and go to the DA's office and ask for the dosposition on it. They might charge you, they might not. Usually about $1.00 per page. Some places won't give you the disposition unless you first get the background check done.

I had misdemeanors, and even a bench warrant (that I didn't know about from a 2001 disturbing the peace) when I got mine. They are only looking for felonies and violent crimes. If you got busted with pot back in the day you are good.
But do know any many areas getting busted with pot, and having a gun on your person is an automatic felony.
