Knowledgeable Minnesota Gun Rights Attorney
You’ve served your time. You’ve paid your fines. You’re free to reenter life as you know it.
But you aren’t.
Once you’ve been committed of a crime, you lose your constitutional right to possess a firearm. Additionally, individuals who have been convicted of any misdemeanor or gross misdemeanor crime may not possess a firearm for at least 3 years post-conviction. Those who have been convicted of a felony may not possess a firearm for at least 3 years—and potentially for life—while those convicted of a violent crime automatically receive a lifetime ban on the right to possess a firearm.
Additionally, individuals who have been civilly committed as mentally ill, plead “not guilty due to mental illness” or are chemically dependent may not carry firearms.
I Can Seek to Get Your Gun Rights Reinstated
I am criminal defense attorney Murad Mohammad. For years, I have been helping clients in Minnesota reinstate their gun rights after a criminal conviction. If you have questions about whether you can possess a firearm or how you can get your firearm rights back, reach out to me.
In general, there are a few ways to get your right to possess a gun or other firearm reinstated. Speak to me if you are eligible for any of these post-conviction relief options:
- Get your record expunged
- Seek judicial restoration of your rights
I can explain these options to you, as well as walk you through what the process looks like and how long it may take to get your rights reinstated.
Defending Against Other Weapons Charges
I can fight any weapons offense you may be facing, including:
- Illegal possession of a firearm
- Carrying a weapon without a permit
- Carrying a weapon while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Carrying a rifle, shotgun or BB gun in public
- Illegal sales of a firearm
I will also provide you with the dedicated, aggressive representation you require if you are facing elevated charges for a crime based on the fact that you were just exercising your constitutional right to possess a firearm
