Thank you so much for your response. All very good advice. Especially because it did not come with a price tag.
I would preferred that my original post remain intact. I am confident of my anonymity on this forum and would hope that this discussion be of benefit to future subscribers.
But once again, the advice that I need an attorney creates an insurmountable obstacle to reestablishing my Second Amendment rights. I will, upon your recommendation, contact my local Bar Association to determine whether free or low-cost representation is available.
I was never notified of anything. I am asking these questions to prevent losing my application fee and/or violating the law. Although your arguments regarding my situation are rational, I am still not comfortable with moving forward without some clarification in the gray areas. Also, with all due respect, please review point 4 of the previous post.
