Experienced Lawyers to Restore Your Gun Rights in Minnesota
Minnesotans like to hunt. Yet a criminal conviction for even a minor offense may result in you losing your right to possess a gun, even for hunting or target practice. Gun laws are complex and often confusing the police and gun rights advocates.
Complicating matters further is that sometimes state laws apply to the right to own a firearm while at other times federal laws are applicable. If you have had your gun license revoked, restoring your rights requires the help of experienced lawyers who understand the nuances of the law and can preserve your rights.
Lawyers Who Help Restore Gun Rights in Minnesota
Frequently, law enforcement and prosecutors oppose restoring gun ownership privileges to anyone who has been convicted of even a relatively minor crime. If there is a felony conviction on your record and you apply on your own but are denied, you may have to wait three more years before even applying again.
The laws are complicated regarding exactly which criminal convictions will deprive someone of their right to possess a firearm of any kind. More important, being caught with a weapon after being declared ineligible to have one is a serious offense in and of itself. In Minnesota, such a crime can carry with it a mandatory 60 month (five years) prison sentence.
