Why You Need an Attorney

Because the laws preventing gun ownership and possession by felons are federal statues, a convicted felon cannot purchase or own a firearm in any state. Additionally, these strict laws state that the felon cannot be found with any ammunition in his or her possession either.

However, you may be able to escape your gun possession charges if you qualify for any exceptions under Massachusetts state law. If your original felony conviction occurred in Massachusetts, yet the state restored your civil rights, then you may be legally allowed to possess a firearm.
