ASTAI Acknowledgement of Qualification to Possess Firearms or Ammunition

I have read and acknowledged that I am qualified to possess a firearm and ammunition in line with the qualifications presented here.

An Amendment to the Gun Control Act of 1968 (18 U.S.C. 922) makes it a felony for anyone who has been convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence to ship, transport, possess, or receive firearms or ammunition. It is also a felony for any person to sell or otherwise dispose of a firearm to any person so convicted.

A person shall not be considered as having committed a “crime of domestic violence” for purposes of the firearm restriction of the Gun Control Act unless all of the following elements are present:

  1. The person was convicted of a crime.
  2. The offense has as its factual basis the use or attempted use of physical force, or threatened use of a deadly weapon.
  3. The convicted offender was at the time of the offense
    1. a current or former spouse, parent or guardian of the victim.
    2. a person with whom the victim shared a child in common.
    3. a person who was cohabitating with or has cohabitated with the victim as a spouse, parent, or guardian, or
    4. a person who was similarly situated to a spouse, parent, or guardian of the victim
  4. The convicted offender was represented by counsel, or knowingly and intelligently waived the right to counsel.
  5. If entitled to have the case tried by jury, the case was actually tried by jury of the person knowingly and intelligently waived the right to have the case tried by jury.
  6. The conviction has not been expunged or set aside, or the convicted offender has not been pardoned for the offense or had civil rights restored, or the pardon, expungement, or restoration of civil rights provides that the person may not ship, transport, possess or receive firearms.

It is in the interest ASTAI to ensure that all participants in training comply with Federal Law.
