Firearms Rights Reinstatement
The second amendment to the federal constitution allows all Americans to own and possess firearms. The Washington State government takes these rights away if you are convicted of a felony crime or certain misdemeanor crimes.
Once your firearm rights have been taken away, the only way to have them reinstated is to obtain a court order.
