Convicted felons lose their constitutional right to bear arms as a result of their felony conviction, even those for minor or nonviolent offenses. Now there is a way for convicted felons who may not be able to expunge their conviction to once again protect themselves, their homes, and their families through a Restoration of Firearms Rights. We may be able to help you legally enjoy your Second Amendment rights again.
There are a lot of requirements to restore your firearms rights, with the primary one being a 20 year waiting period from the date of your felony conviction. Unlike a felony conviction expunction under North Carolina General Statute 15A-145.5, you can have other misdemeanor convictions along with your disqualifying federal conviction, unless one of these misdemeanor convictions disqualifies you from restoring your rights, such as a misdemeanor domestic violence conviction.
