How can I get my gun rights back?

On December 23, 2012, in The Constitution, by admin

I was convicted of a felony in 1995, and since then have been to prison and completed my sentence. now I want to be able to own a gun again( and if you’re anti gun don’t bother answering) I was not convicted of a violent crime, just indecent exposure, so I should be able to have a gun, right?

As long as the conviction stands, you will not have gun rights. You have two options to remove the conviction: A pardon from the Governor or an expungment.

A pardon is rare. The rules for expungement vary. Contact an attorney in your area or ask the court clerk where the conviction was entered.

    You can try. It depends upon how the law is written in your state, and any federal statues that could prevent you from possessing a firearm. If you are classified as a sex offender.
    You will not be permitted to have a legal firearm.

    No. A felony conviction of any kind permanently revokes your right to possess a firearm in the United States, regardless of what level of felony it was.

    Nope. Felons are not permitted to own firearms, no matter their crime. Sucks for you. Probably shouldn’t have committed a felony if you’re into guns. Good news though; in some states you may be able to vote again soon! High five!
