Seems as though the ATF is correct on this one and that the intention of the Congress is that there be no record of these convictions kept. If the State can dreg it up again it is not expunged by definition.

What the feds are after is the power to *erase* past state records of misconduct by their own officers and agents, so that they need not fear state action for their own past misconduct or conspiracies to commit same.

If they don't get that, they're not going to let the peons of whom they feel they are the masters enjoy any such relief either.

An unconstitutional Federal 'law' prohibits anyone convicted of "a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence" from possessing a firearm.

In 1986, Congress amended that bogus 'law' to allow states to set rules for restoring gun rights to people who've been pardoned or whose convictions have been "expunged, or set aside."

In 2004, Wyoming's legislature compounded, and agreed with the federal infringement by passing a 'law' meant to govern how such convictions could be expunged:
"-- Individuals would have to wait one year after completing their sentence; they would not qualify if their misdemeanor conviction involved the use or attempted use of a firearm; and they could not have any other convictions that prohibit them from owning guns. --"

The US Constitution is clear in that no level of government can infringe on our right to bear arms. -- A fiat prohibition on a persons RKBA's for "a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence" is clearly an unreasonable regulation regardless if written by fed, state or local 'lawmakers'..

That sheriff in Bighorn County should refuse to enforce it.

Huh? There are no federal officers charged with crimes to be expunged.
