Is a criminal record keeping you from possessing, using, or owning a firearm? We have helped hundreds of people restore their right to own a firearm. If you have lost that right, we want to help you by having it restored. Take the first steps to a better life now by doing our free online evaluation and see if you are eligible to have your firearm rights restored and/or your criminal record expunged.
If you were convicted of a "crime of violence", state law prohibits you from owning or possessing a firearm. "Crime of violence" is defined under Minnesota law and includes a long list of offenses. Some of the more common offenses, which fall into this category and for which we have successfully had firearm rights restored, include drug offenses under chapter 152 and burglary. For a complete list of offenses, which are considered a "crime of violence" and result in a firearm prohibition under Minnesota state law, please see our Frequently Asked Questions.
Additionally, federal law prevents anyone convicted of a felony from owning or possession a firearm. So, even if your offense was not a crime of violence as determined by MN law, you will still be denied the legal right to own a firearm unless you have your rights restored.
When determining whether to restore an individual's firearm rights, the court will consider whether there is good cause. Minnesota courts have not provided an exact definition of "good cause." However, examples could include needing a firearm for employment purposes or hunting or because there is no reason to believe that the individual cannot be trusted to own a firearm.
Here are the offenses involved in some of our recent firearm rights restoration cases:
