How to Restore Your Gun Rights in California

There are two primary approaches to restore firearm possession rights in California:

  • Reduction of a felony to a misdemeanor under California Penal Code § 17(b), which allows a reduction when this is “in the interests of justice.” A reduction of charges under § 17(b) will restore firearm rights as long as the defendant has no other prior disqualifying convictions.
  • Applying for a gubernatorial pardon. The Governor of California has the authority to pardon certain felony convictions, if the applicant has “demonstrated exemplary behavior following conviction for a felony.”

Restoring gun rights may be difficult, but it is not impossible. With an Atascadero gun rights attorney from our firm by your side, you can take advantage of the opportunities available to you under Penal Code § 17(b) or a gubernatorial pardon. We will work with you to find a real solution and will then apply our resources, experience, and knowledge to restoring your right to own a firearm.
