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
