    Default Can a Convicted Felon in Tennessee Get His Gun Rights Back and Passport

    My question involves criminal records for the state of: Tennessee

    In 1992 I was 18 and convicted of arson it was an old abandoned home no one lived in. I got 3 years sentence and spent a few months in jail the rest on probation. I want to travel and go outside the U.S but I have no passport and as a convicted felon I know I cannot just go get one.

    Is there anyway I can get this off my record so I can own guns again and get a passport?

    I appreciate your time in helping me with my question.

    As long as you have completed your probation, you are perfectly free to get a passport. As for the gun rights go, you'd do best to get a lawyer. It can be a complex and confusing process with the smallest error punting you back to square one or out of consideration entirely.

    I think an expungment is out of the question for you, although, you may be able to retain a lawyer and seek "restoration of rights", You will forever have a felony record, but, if the restoration of rights is successful, it will remove the state and federal firearms disqualification.
