    Question regarding DOJ Background check

    Well im 26 years old and I was thinking about going to buy a gun here in california. But I dont know much about california law as much. So I was wondering if anyone here would know the answer I am looking for. Well I know DOJ here in California thoroughly check your background to see if you have any felonies or any conviction in the past. Well when I was younger (15 years old) I was caught stealing a minor item. Dont ask me what but it was less than $100 so its considered a petty theft and a misdemeanor. So I was wondering since DOJ will check my background and reveal a misdemeanor. Will that misdemeanor be hold against me even though I got it before I was 18 years old? Help

    Only the DOJ knows the answer for sure but my guess would be no, it will not affect your eligibility. You can refer to page 2 within this link for more info regarding firearm prohibitions for misdemeanor violations...

    You also have the option to find out your eligibility status by applying to the Personal Firearms Eligibility Check Program.

    Misdemeanor and the fact that you were a minor won't affect your eligibility. I wouldn't worry about it at all. And if you ever plan on owning a handgun/shotgun/rifle then you'll have to find out sooner or later.

    First try to get your record expunged, if you can not then that will answer your question.
