Restoration of Firearms Rights



The Parole Commission has the statutory authority to restore firearms rights for certain crimes. A restoration of firearms application only restores the right to a firearm. For more information regarding the authority of the Parole Commission, requirements that must be met prior to filing applications, and decision making processes, click on the links below.

If applying for a pardon, there is NO need to file an application for firearm rights restoration. Firearms rights are restored if a pardon is granted.
