If my domestic violence case was deferred, how do I answer the question on buying a gun that asks if I have been convicted of domestic violence? Do I answer yes or do I answer no since the case was deferred? If I answer yes, will it stop me from getting the gun? I don't know how to answer the question.
If you completed the deferred, and the case was dismissed, then you were not convicted of the charge. If you are in the middle of the deferred, it will be treated as a conviction, and I can't imagine a domestic violence deferred contract that would allow you to buy a gun anyway.
