Illinois Firearm Rights Restoration
Mistakes from your past should not prevent you from enjoying your Second Amendment rights. People restore their right to own a gun for a variety of reasons, including hunting, personal protection, target shooting, and investment. Americans also have the Constitutional right to own a firearm, and convictions for certain criminal offenses can take that right away.
Fortunately, Illinois State law permits a judge to restore firearm rights if certain requirements are met, including:
- You have not been convicted of a forcible felony in any state in the past 20 years, or at least 20 years have passed since you were released from prison for the forcible felony* conviction;
- Your criminal history and reputation are such that the you will not be likely to act in a manner dangerous to public safety;
- Restoring your firearm rights would not be contrary to the public interest; and
- Restoring your firearm rights would not be contrary to federal law.
