Legal Question: Firearms

I had a domestic violence felony vacated—harassment involving a weapon. Did I lose my federal gun rights?

Any felony will result in your loss of firearm rights. Getting a felony vacated does NOT automatically restore your gun rights. There is a separate petition for restoration that needs to be filed even after getting a conviction vacated. An experienced attorney should be able to do this for you at a fairly reasonable cost.

Do NOT own, possess, or even be around firearms before your rights are restored, or you could be looking at a very serious new criminal charge.
