Firearm Possession after a Felony

A felony-grade conviction carries a variety of very serious consequences in addition to criminal penalties such as jail and fines. In particular, a person can lose many of their rights that are otherwise protected by the Constitution. This can include the right to bear arms. According to federal regulations, a person is not allowed to possess a firearm if they have been convicted of a felony-level offense.

If you have been charged with a felony and you are interested in learning more about your legal rights in this situation, contact the San Jose criminal defense attorneys of the [firm-name] at [phone-number] today.

Exemptions to the Felony Firearm Possession Ban

According to the law, felons are not allowed to possess or carry firearms. However, there are some exceptions to this rule. In particular, these exemptions may allow individuals who were not convicted of physically dangerous crimes to continue possessing or owning a firearm.

The following individuals may be allowed to keep a firearm even after a felony conviction:

  • Americans convicted of felonies in foreign countries
  • Many white-collar felons
  • Felons sentenced to less than a year of prison time

If you are interested in keeping a firearm but you have been convicted of a felony, speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney to see if there are any exemptions for which you may qualify.
