Washington Firearms Restoration Lawyer

You have a constitutional right to possess firearms under the Washington State Constitution and the U.S. Constitution.  

But this right is not an absolute right.  Your right is subject to many state and federal restrictions.  

The most common restriction is your criminal record.  

In Washington, you cannot possess or own or use firearms if you've been convicted of a felony or a domestic violence misdemeanor crime.  Federal law is very similar.  

Unlike some states, you do not get your rights back after a certain number of years following your conviction of a crime.  You lost your right to possess firearms permanently.

Fortunately, you can file a petition to restore your firearm rights in Washington.  Whether you can restore your rights depends mainly on two factors:

  • Your criminal record
  • The time between your crime and when you file your petition
