If you are found guilty of domestic violence, you lose your right to possess a firearm. That is correct. No shades of gray. You lose it, since apparently the court was not convinced by your claim of self-defense.

On the other hand, if your defense to the charge of domestic violence is that you were acting in self-defense, and you are acquitted, you don't lose your right to possess a firearm. No shades of gray.

That seems pretty clear.
