Providing Tough Gun Crimes Defense
Even the most experienced gun owners can find it difficult to keep all the laws straight. There are different regulations governing handguns and machine guns, as well as clip size and other details. Those accused of using a firearm while committing another crime face even more severe consequences, including mandatory prison time and strong sanctions—financial and otherwise—that can seriously impact your life.
Some individuals who have been previously charged with a misdemeanor or felony may not be aware that their gun rights have been impacted, and could later be seen as felons in possession. These scenarios are commonplace, yet their impact on your rights and future is serious. We make it a point to stay up to date on statewide gun laws so that we can always protect your future.
Can a Felon Own a Gun After 10 Years in Tennessee?
A felon can not own a gun after 10 years in Tennessee, the only way to do that is to get a complete restoration firearms rights under state law. Once a person has obtained a complete restoration of firearms and other citizenship rights, regardless of whether that restoration of firearms rights was obtained, that individual may lawfully possess or purchase any firearm that may be lawfully possessed or purchased by any other private citizen. An expungement of a felony conviction operates as a complete restoration of firearms rights, and no further action is required.
