Hi Kurt, thanks for the education. There are two items here. On the Gun issue, I did not consider the registered who carry a misdemeanor charge. I personally have not met or heard of a SO in my state that is not a Felon of course I do not have access to that info. But, thanks for the information. The problem seems to be just what you mentioned,

” The question comes down to the laws of each State and often, local ordinances where an RSO lives and individual circumstances of their offense ”

there is not a “Standard” to the laws, they are all over the place and in one state it is one way and in another it is another way. In my State it seems that it’s based on a ” Violent Charge ” but it’s confusing. My point was simply that if you go looking for trouble you’ll find it regardless of the laws and to simply do your homework to avoid the “BS” – trouble when you do travel. International travel is a whole other issue. Let’s hope that you don’t loose your right to carry.

I found this, you may have seen it:
