Gun Rights Restoration
No matter the circumstances or how long ago it happened, a felony conviction affects your rights. For many people, the worst part of a felony record is that they cannot buy, own or possess firearms for any reason, including hunting, collecting or self-defense.
The right to bear arms is one of the fundamental constitutional rights enjoyed by Americans. The Roanoke criminal defense firm of Robert F. Rider, PLC, is here to help you with restoring your gun rights. As one of the most successful firms in Virginia when it comes to gun rights restoration, we are confident that we can help you too.
Gun Rights Restoration In Virginia
The process starts with a petition to the governor’s office to restore your civil rights, including your right to vote. Once that office issues a letter order, we can go to circuit court to petition to restore your 2nd Amendment rights. With the help of attorney Robert Rider, you have a good chance of success. The Commonwealth might object, but if it does so, it must provide a solid basis.
Many of our clients have a single felony conviction from 20 or more years ago. However, if you have multiple convictions, don’t give up hope. We may still be able to help. We also assist out-of-state residents, though their gun rights are only restored in Virginia.
