Get Your 2nd Amendment Rights Restored Before They No Longer Exist
June 28, 2016
As the Fourth of July approaches, I get a strong sense of patriotism. I’m proud to be an American, and our country’s birthday is a reminder of the principles our country was founded upon. The US Constitution grants our people great freedom and rights that should not be taken away. Unfortunately, some of our freedom and rights as Americans are currently under attack.
Your 2nd Amendment Rights Are Under Attack
Our founding fathers were clear in granting us as Americans the right to bear arms and protect ourselves. Unfortunately, many politicians are now using recent tragedy to justify the taking away of our Constitutional right to protect ourselves as Americans. To be clear, the recent events in Orlando were an unimaginable tragedy, and I obviously do not support arming suspected terrorists with known hatred for America.
The FBI was contacted and warned something like this may happen more than once in the weeks leading up to the horrific events in Orlando, and failed to prevent this unfortunate event. This is unacceptable. Our government must do a better job at protecting us from the evil people that seek to destroy our great nation, and can do so without taking away our rights as Americans to protect ourselves from that very evil.
Restoring Your Constitutional Rights While You Can
For the moment, I feel very fortunate to have my Second Amendment right to bear arms. Although politicians are currently trying to take those rights away, many Americans have had their Constitutional right to purchase, possess, and use a firearm taken away for a long time for very little reason. In America, if you are convicted of any felony, even a non-violent offense from many years ago, your Second Amendment rights are taken away forever. For example, if you were convicted 25 years ago for felony possession of a small amount of marijuana, that youthful mistake will take away your Second Amendment rights forever. Is this fair? Is this American? No, it most certainly is not.
Fortunately, many states have enacted laws that restore Second Amendment rights for non-violent Americans who have made a mistake in their past. These laws almost always require a judge to make a determination that you are not a danger to society, and do not put guns back in the hands of dangerous criminals. Dangerous criminals typically do not care about legal gun ownership—they will continue to illegally purchase guns and commit crime regardless of whether they have the right to legally possess a firearm.
We Are Here to Help You Regain Your Rights as an American
Our law firm has helped many Americans restore their right to own a firearm, and I can tell you from a wealth of experience that those seeking to use the legal system to restore their Constitutional rights are not criminals who are looking to buy a gun to commit a crime. First and foremost, the fact that they are going through the process of using the legal system shows that they care about the rule of law. Criminals do not want to waste the time, money, or effort to legally restore their firearm rights because they do not care about the rule law while committing crimes. They also will rarely qualify.
We talk to hundreds of individuals every month seeking to restore their firearm rights. Not everybody qualifies, but the vast majority of callers are people who made a mistake in their past that want to hunt, protect their families, or enjoy the sport of shooting—they don’t call us up so that they can go knock off a liquor store. We cannot help everybody, but we do help a lot of otherwise law-abiding Americans restore their Constitutional rights which were taken away due to past mistakes.
Each state has a different process for restoring firearm rights, and the process is typically difficult to navigate without an attorney experienced in firearm rights restoration. WipeRecord is happy to help guide you through the process—we strongly encourage you to take our FREE, confidential Eligibility Test or give us a call toll free at (844) 947-3732 to discuss your eligibility and the process of restoring your Second Amendment rights as an American. The process can be as fast as about a few months, or take an entire year—the quicker you contact us, the quicker we can help you regain your Constitutional right to bear arms!

If you have a criminal record, you could be prohibited from buying a gun. The National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) is the federal system that federal firearms licensees (FFL) such as gun shop owners, pawn shop owners, and retailers use to determine whether a person is legally permitted to purchase a firearm.Read More
