Hello all,

New member here. I am wondering if anyone has any info or direction for re-instating gun rights for someone with a non-violent felony on their record.

I've heard it is quite difficult in NY, but that doesn't mean it's not worth trying. Only thing is, I don't know where to start. Google has only proven to be effective

at finding the most generic of solutions in my case. Any leads or info would be much appreciated. 

Thanks

What county do you live in? Go to the police license bureau in that town, Mineola Or Yaphank, The Sheriff for the east end ,and ask for a fast appointment to ask questions. They are the ones that issue The licenses they will tell you straight up.

If the result from that is negative and you have deep pockets you can litigate it with several attorneys here on LI.

Up state see your local sheriffs.

MickeyBlueyes has the right idea. Start by writing a letter to your local issuing Agent, Explain your situation and request a meeting to answer any questions and supply documents.  If this leads to litigation at least it will be documented.

No, he doesn’t. This is not a pistol licensing issue, so they will have nothing to do with it.

Unfortunately the pistol license officers and clerk's do not have the answer for that.
You have to hire an attorney, before applying for a pistol license the court will have to rule for a certificate of relief from civil disabilities.
Felony's are a no go in many states. Here in New York you have the ability to own a firearm with a Felony conviction.

You must apply for thru Corrections for relief. It's in there power to restore your Constitutional rights. I believe it's a Certificate of Relief from disabilities. I believe your voting rights are restored 2 years after, but others you will have to apply for.

I have a friend that applied after a DWI felony conviction, but there was an issue when he was a teen involving a shotgun in his car. He was pulled over and arrested because the shotgun he had on the back floorboard had a shell in the tube and that is in his record. So they denied him.

The Environmental Conservation Law prohibits a loaded firearm. Your friend may have been charged with Criminal possession of a weapon. That will definitely disqualify him.

I would think you’d start by writing/ meeting with your local state legislature. Sounds like a tough process

Sorry I did not put a lot of thought into the answer,so many guys ask about pistol permits ,I take long guns for granted. I apologize and will return to the shelf.

I’m pretty sure it’s not involved with any firearms

If convicted of a Misdemeanor DWI, if you are arrested again under 10 years the charge becomes a Felony.
The firearm inside the vehicle was definitely a Criminal possession of a weapon.
