The Lautenberg Amendment to the Gun Control Act of 1968, effective 30 September 1996, makes it a felony for those convicted of misdemeanor crimes of domestic violence to ship, transport, possess, or receive firearms or ammunition.

Note this, CONVICTED.

That's not what the op is talking about. A protection order is NOT a conviction.

I would be interested in knowing WHAT FEDERAL CRIME violating a state protection order is.
