921(g)(20) only applies to a miniscule subset of felonies.
I already mentioned having your rights restored, but I'll admit you've brought up something new. What is having your rights "sealed" or "expunged" and how would either of those things possibly help?
Sorry I meant U.S.C 921(a)(20) My whole point is just because you have a f4 in Ohio which could result in sentencing of greater than a year does not guarantee you are disabled on state or federal level.
Almost 100% of the time it does. The exclusions under 921(a)(20) only apply to "offenses pertaining to antitrust violations, unfair trade practices, restraints of trade, or other similar offenses relating to the regulation of business practices". Ohio has dozens upon dozens of (non-violent/non-drug related) felonies that are outside those exclusions.

Sealing a record is not enough to restore gun rights. You have to at least have the record expunged. This is also noted in U.S.C 921(a)(20) .
