A Criminal Conviction Can Lead To Loss Of Gun Rights

Aside from the typical criminal consequences of a conviction — fines, jail time, community service, etc. — individuals might also lose their right to possess a firearm and ammunition. In states such as North Dakota and Minnesota, the loss of the right to possess a firearm or apply for a hunting license can have a devastating impact. There are also federal consequences regarding the loss of your right to possess a firearm or ammunition. Just because a person may get his right to possess a firearm or ammunition from the state, does not mean that you are not violating federal law and can be charged in federal court for illegally possessing a firearm or ammunition. Once a person loses their right to possess firearms and ammunition, you must not possess either of these until you get both your state and federal rights restored.
