Conviction on any number of crimes can result in an ineligibility to receive a firearms permit in New Jersey, but the specifics matter a lot.
Domestic violence crimes can result in a lifetime ban, while other disorderly and misdemeanor offenses may have no impact on your ability to get a permit.
Felony convictions can also produce a lifetime ban on firearms permits in New Jersey.
Many offenses are subject to expungement after a period of time, if all terms of your sentence have been completed satisfactorily.
Expungement is a way of, in effect, erasing the record of a criminal conviction and restoring your status as though you’d never been convicted.
This process can be used to reinstate your 2nd Amendment rights in New Jersey, though it is not available for all criminal convictions.
To learn whether your 2nd Amendment rights are in jeopardy from a current criminal charge, and whether you can regain them through expungement if convicted, call Matthew Reisig at 732-625-9661 today for a free consultation.
