The question on the CCW should have asked whether you have been convicted of a misdemeanor with a sentence that could result in incarceration of ONE year, not two years. I would check it again. The problem that comes up in these matters is that they are governed by both Pennsylvania and Federal law. Pennsylvania law, standing alone, does not prohibit your possession. It is the Federal law that prevents your possession (and thus your CCW) because of a conviction with a potential of one year or more of incarceration. Generally you must wait 10 years from the time of the conviction to apply in state court to remove the firearm disability.
