Federal gun laws state that if you are convicted of a crime that leads to at least one year in prison you lose your right to own, accept, sell, ship, or transfer firearms and firearm ammunition. A conviction for misdemeanor domestic assault or any felony may also carry a ban from owning a firearm.
It can be difficult to have your gun rights reinstated in Minnesota. Having your Minneapolis gun rights lawyer by your side during your defense and the reinstatement of your rights can have better results all around. The different methods of reinstating gun rights include expungement of the crime that is keeping you from owning a firearm, setting aside the conviction and restitution of rights. Certain criteria have to exist in order to have gun rights reinstated, otherwise the request cannot be granted.
