Protecting and Restoring Your Gun Rights
The Second Amendment and the Wisconsin Constitution guarantee you the right to keep and bear arms. However, if you are charged with a felony or a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence, or if you are facing a restraining order, your gun rights are in serious jeopardy.
A felony conviction will prohibit you from possessing a firearm for life, as will a conviction for a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence. Similarly, if a restraining order is issued against you, you will be prohibited from possessing a firearm for the length of time the restraining order is in effect. For many, losing one’s gun rights is a life-changing consequence that must be treated accordingly by an attorney experienced in handling such matters.
If you are concerned that your case or restraining order might cause you to lose your gun rights, if you think that you have lost your gun rights because of a conviction or restraining order, or if you are having trouble getting your CCW permit, call Geoff Misfeldt at Hart Powell, S.C.. He is a gun owner, a lifelong hunter, and has the experience and knowledge needed to craft creative solutions to achieve the best possible outcome if you are facing the loss of your gun rights.
