Restoration of Gun Rights in North Carolina
North Carolina has historically been recognized as a gun-friendly state. Our state laws allow citizens the right of gun ownership for hunting and target shooting, as well as personal and home defense. However, if you have a previous felony conviction, even if it was a non-violent offense, you are prohibited from possessing any gun or ammunition.
Fortunately, your right to own a firearm can be restored. NC residents who have been convicted of non-violent felonies may have their gun rights restored if they lawfully meet certain criteria. The statute defining these criteria can be very difficult to interpret and apply correctly and successfully. At the Robinson Law Firm, we can determine if you are eligible and the best way to proceed in order to be successful in the restoration of your right to possess a gun.
Restoration of gun rights MAY NOT be permitted if:
A person is convicted of a federal offense
The offense is of a violent nature
The felony offense occurred outside of North Carolina
A person is addicted or unlawful user of controlled substances
Dishonorable discharge from the U.S. Armed Forces
