Strict Enforcements Against Felon in Possession of a Firearm

The answer to “Can a felon own a gun?” No. In fact, a convicted felon not only can not own a gun but also can not possess a gun or weapon of any kind. This includes hunting guns, bow and arrows, kitchen knives and heirloom items. Even if your great-grandfather passed on to you a gun that has been in the family for years, if you are a convicted felon you cannot ever possess it. The consequences can mean additional felony charges, significant fines and jail time.

There are other individuals who are restricted from possessing a weapon or firearm, including:

  • The criminally insane
  • Illegal immigrants
  • Anyone dishonorably discharged by the military
  • Those convicted of certain misdemeanors (i.e., domestic violence)
  • Those convicted of certain crimes of violence (i.e., rape, murder, manslaughter, kidnapping, child abuse)
  • Those who are caught in possession of illegal drugs

If you fall into any of these classes of individuals who are prohibited from owning a weapon, discuss your rights with a knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer. My name is Catherine Cleveland. With more than a decade of criminal defense experience, I can discuss the specifics of your case and how to avoid such violations.
