Does the Driver License Compact (DLC) apply to my situation (question below)?
The Driver License Compact (DLC) states, "Under the Driver License Compact, in order for a driver's state to penalize him/her for an out-of-state offense, the driver's state must have the equivalent statute. If the driver's state does not have the statute, no action can be taken." I have been convicted of DWAI in Colorado. Colorado has 2 types of impairment offenses. 1) DUI - .08 and higher BAC 2) DWAI .05 to .079. Nevada only has a DUI law for .08 and higher BAC. It does not have a DWAI law equivalent to Colorado (for a lower BAC). I currently live in and have a Nevada drivers license. Will my license in Nevada be suspended after they suspend my Colorado drivers license because of the Drivers License Compact?
The DUI will be the obvious equivalent. Should have asked this question before pleading if you had a chance.If you get...

Nevada CCW permit revoked for misdemeanor DUI. Can I avoid the revocation by proving non-habituality of the use of alcohol?
I received a letter from the LVMPD CCW detail stating that my CCW permit has been revoked due to a recent misdemeanor DUI (alcohol) conviction. The letter states NRS 202.3657, section 4(d)(1) as it's mandate. The above statute says: "Has habitually used intoxicating liquor or a controlled substance to the extent that his or her normal faculties are impaired. For the purposes of this paragraph, it is presumed that a person has so used intoxicating liquor or a controlled substance if, during the immediately preceding 5 years, the person has been: (1)Convicted of violating the provisions of NRS 484C.110 (DUI statute)...". It uses the word "Habitual" and not "has ever" or "ever". Is there a way I could avoid the revocation by proving it was a one-time use through doctors letters/diagnosis?
What you do is retain a local "gun rights restoration lawyer" to investigate the situation.
