I tried to get a permit to buy a firearm last week in mcdowell county NC and was told Tacoma WA (pierce co.) Has a non expiring protection order against me. I do not know the year or the details, I was stationed there (army) since 1983 and moved out of state in 1999 I'm living in Marion NC. This issue has never come up before so I'm at a crossroads and need advice for my next move. Thank you for your time.
