REINSTATEMENT OF GUN PURCHASE AND POSSESSION RIGHTS

| May 10, 2013 | Firm News |

If you have been denied the right to purchase or possess a firearm due to prior history involving a mental health commitment or a minor criminal violation, you may be eligible to have your rights to purchase and possess a firearm restored. There are both federal and state laws which prohibit certain persons from carrying a concealed weapon, purchasing a gun, or possessing a gun. However the law tries to strike a balance respecting individuals’ Second Amendment rights. There is a procedure by which your rights to purchase or posses a firearm may be restored under appropriate circumstances. Recently we were successful in having the rights of a citizen to possess firearms restored. So if you have a restriction from owning or purchasing a firearm due to a prior mental health commitment or perhaps a minor criminal violation, the law may provide an avenue by which your Second Amendment rights may be reinstated.
