How did you find out? Were you turned down for a purchase or did someone you know who knows someone tell you? Spend a little money and consult a good attorney in your area. They can do a criminal background search and find out if those prohibit you. If you tried to purchase from an FFL they should give the phone number of who to check with in order to clear it up.

If you tried to purchase a firearm from a dealer and were denied, start here:

You can try an appeal.

However, if the misdemeanors were punishable by over year sentence. It might be considered the same as a felony charge. (In the eyes of our gov)

Black Knight said it all, spend money and consult a good attorney. Good Luck.

Agree with PoPo22 and Black Knight - get an attorney and find out the specifics.
