    You have no ideal what I violated or have done, people like you is why people don't like these type of forums.
    And yet here you are, asking a question without providing ANY details that would be necessary to answer the question.

    Here is what I know... you broke the law, got arrested and were found guilty. I know how difficult it is to get to this point. At some point you were given an opportunity to prove that you had rehabilitated and were put on probation. You violated the terms of that probation, got found out, were arrested a second time and were found guilty a second time. In my experience, that takes a special kind of person to get jammed up while on probation.

    The Supreme Court has ruled that criminals can forfeit certain rights. I have little patience for gun rights for a one time offender. I have almost ZERO patience for a two time offender when it comes to gun rights. You've proven to the court system and society at large that you cannot control yourself and make good decisions. Perhaps you've grown since then, but when you knew that you were being supervised you still couldn't not be a criminal.

    But hey, welcome to the forum and a strong first post.

    I know of a person who had a violation of probation in the late eighties that has an hql. Violated probation on a charge that carried a sentence of 6 months in jail. His probation was revoked and he served the 6 months. I would guess it would depend on the severity of the crime that the probation was for and the potential jail time.

    I am not sure of the answer. There are two ways to know for sure:

    1) Buy a gun and fill out 4473 + 77R
    2) Pay an attorney and ask them - my guess is that even this isn't foolproof

    What was the potential jail time for disorderly conduct at the time?

    If the state thinks he is an imminent danger to society he should still be incarcerated.

    If his initial "act" of Disorderly (Conduct, I assume) happened 30 years ago, I seriously doubt that the probation period lasted more than 5 years.

    Since the state no longer thinks he is an imminent danger to society, his rights should be restored.
