Washington Firearms Restoration Lawyer

You have a constitutional right to possess firearms under both the Washington and the U.S. Constitution.  But this right is not an absolute right.  Your right to have a firearm is subject to many restrictions.  

The most common restriction is being convicted of a crime.  

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

Unlike some states, you don't get your rights back after a certain number of years.  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
