    Does not compute :confused: :)

    I think you should be asking someone will proper legal training, personally. I can tell you the opinion here will be no, but it's what the law will actually do that matters. :(

    BATFE FAQs

    The BATFE FAQ on Domestic Violence convictions provides a pretty good definition of the covered offenses. However, you will need to research further whether the 'ex-girlfriend' falls into a covered category of victim.

    The short version is, if you lived together (either before or during the incident) then it is likely that you are Prohibited from owning guns. If you did not live together, then it is much less likely that you are Prohibited. In any case, you need the advice of a Lawyer to determine if the 'ex-girlfriend' was covered at all by the statute, as a person 'similarly situated' to a spouse.

    If you are a Prohibited person, and have skated by until now, all it takes is one file cabinet from the Courthouse being Digitized and added to the online Databases and they will be after you.

    Check this out with a Lawyer ASAP.
