Loss of Firearm Rights
You can lose your right to possess firearms following certain convictions or imposition of certain court orders. If legally deprived of this right, you must be advised orally and in writing that you must surrender any concealed pistol license, and that you may not possess a firearm unless your right is restored by the court.
Any felony conviction automatically leads to loss of the right to possess firearms, as do many “domestic violence” misdemeanor offenses. These include convictions for:
- Assault in the Fourth Degree
- Reckless Endangerment
- Criminal Trespass in the First Degree
- Violations of a Protection Order or No Contact Order
Possessing a firearm after having your firearm rights terminated is a big deal and can lead to a felony conviction, so it is vital to seek the help of an experienced attorney to help you earn back your right to possess firearms. We can help you file a petition to restore firearm rights in Vancouver WA and much of Southwest Washington.
