    Default Restoration of Firearms Rights in Kentucky

    It doesn't look promising.
    Quote Quoting Restoration of Firearms Rights in Kentucky
    A state or federal felony conviction also results in the loss of your right to possess a firearm. While some states restore this right at the state level, you cannot regain the right at the federal level, unless your state conviction has been expunged or set aside, you have been pardoned, or your civil rights have been restored and the restoration order does not exclude possessing or purchasing a firearm. Unfortunately for you, the restoration of civil rights in Kentucky does not give the you the right to purchase, own or possess a firearm.
    You should discuss your situation with a local lawyer to see if the law has changed, or if any other avenue of relief is available to you.

    Default Felony Charge

    So the charge you described earlier as your one felony charge wasn't your only felony conviction? Michigan won't expunge a record if you have more than one criminal conviction. You may be able to get relief from the county gun board in the county in which you reside, or apply for a pardon (but getting a pardon in Michigan appears to be a long shot.)

    Default Michigan expungement law.

    If that is your only criminal conviction - not your only felony conviction, but your only criminal conviction, misdemeanor or felony - you may qualify for Michigan expungement.

    Default Re: Removal of Felony from Criminal Record to Restore Gun Rights

    Make sure after your State gun rights are restored,and then see if you can get your Federal gun rights fully restored also.Your charge or charges would have to go threw a process of Clemency first "set aside,pardon,or it was witheld adjudication" then get your rights restored after threw the process.Make sure you get the Federal rights restored also becasue the Feds dont play with that issue especially on Firearms.Talk to a good Attorney on making sure all your rights get restored,and its done threw the proper channels of the different Clemency Boards and the courts.

    If the State restores your gun rights,try to see if the Feds do after under C.F.R. 478.144 on sole discretion,everything looks good far set aside,pardon,clemency good under that code exept withold adjudication because the Federal doesnt reconize withelds etc.-but you might be able to under 478.144 with a witheld under sole discretion then the Federal Judge or Adminstrated Superior grants you your rights and you would be good to go.Very techincal laws and very important to have check out first to make sure your legal for firearm laws thats why both State and Federal restoration is important to have covered.
