Lifetime Firearm Prohibition Now Applies After Misdemeanor Conviction for 273.5

If one is convicted after January 1, 2019 of misdemeanor domestic violence under Penal Code § 273.5, there is a lifetime ban on owning a firearm, ammunition or an ammunition-loading device, rather than a ten-year ban as was previously the law. The new lifetime ban is not triggered by a conviction for violating Penal Code § 243(e)(1), making such a resolution under this code section far more valuable now if one is a gun owner.
