Actually a misdemeanor is never basically a traffic ticket. A traffic ticket is a civil infraction, not a criminal offense.

The reason I picked on you was the context. The misdemeanor being discussed was the misdemeanor of filing a false petition for an ERPO, to which you responded "yeah, a 'traffic ticket' that can make you a prohibited person, essentially for life." That's incorrect (I think.) Lying on a court filing is not covered by the Lautenberg amendment.

Don't mean to pick on you, but if'n we're going to talk about laws and consequences I think we need to be as precise as possible so things don't get taken out of context down the road.
