Getting Your 2nd Amendment Rights Back

If you’ve had felony convictions, you may have lost your right to possess a firearm. While some felonies restrict firearms rights for obvious reasons, a criminal offense like an M1 conviction (first-degree misdemeanor convictions) from a second offense DUI can also cause rights to be taken. Whatever the case, you may still be eligible to restore your firearms rights under certain circumstances even if your criminal record isn’t pristine.
