A Pennsylvania Pardon can help restore your gun rights in New Castle Northwest, PA

We believe in the right to protect yourself and your loved ones, so we help hard-working successful individual restore their gun rights. Most people would not be able to live with themselves if their spouse or child were harmed and a conviction stopped them from adequately protecting their family. A pardon is often the only way to restore your gun rights if you are prohibited from possessing firearms based on a Pennsylvania conviction. Do not be fooled into thinking that you will restore your rights with Clean Slate Limited Access or Limited Access petitions, because criminal justice agencies will still be able to see your convictions and use them against you. Some people even erroneously call these “expungements” even though the records will not be destroyed and the petitioner will still be prohibited from possessing firearms. The famous saying is “there are no shortcuts” and when it comes to restoring your rights from a Pennsylvania conviction, that saying rings true.

There are Many Good Reasons to Apply for a New Castle Northwest Pardon in Pennsylvania

The overwhelming majority of people contact us at The Gun Law Firm with the intention of restoring their firearms rights. But through the course of the process most people realize there are many other reasons they want a Pardon. Some of these include your reputation, your career, and your rights.

When someone calls our office who has a New Castle Northwest, PA conviction on their record, I don’t think of these people as “criminals.” These are hard-working, successful individuals who care about their family, but happen to have been convicted of a crime at some point in their life. These people are generally law-abiding, except for an isolated period in their life. With the internet, it is very easy to look up a person’s criminal history. Most people don’t want that information readily accessible to their co-workers and clients, because it doesn’t represent the person they are today. That’s why protecting your reputation is an excellent reason to apply for a pardon in Pennsylvania.

Convictions can also seriously limit your ability to advance your career. It may become difficult or even impossible to obtain certain licenses, certifications or clearances with a conviction on your record. Even individuals who own a business and have no “employer” can run into this problem. If you are self-employed, you can also lose business if your clients and customers see your convictions online. The people who call my office are typically motivated individuals who want to achieve their full potential. Advancing your career is not solely about personal satisfaction, it helps you better provide for your loved ones who depend on you. That is why many of my clients view a pardon as an investment rather than a cost. They want to get a better job or grow their business. If you are serious about achieving your goals and providing for your family, that is an excellent reason to apply for a pardon in Pennsylvania.

Many people don’t realize that a conviction can impact rights other than firearms. Your right to hold public office, your right to serve on a jury, and your right to vote could all be forfeited through a conviction. As Americans, we value these rights tremendously. Our ability to do our part in protecting our Constitutional Republic lessens dramatically if we are unable to participate in the political process or our judicial system. If you value your rights and value our country, restoring those rights is another great reason to apply for a pardon in Pennsylvania.

But much like a medical emergency, the sooner you get medical attention the better your chances of survival will be. Particularly due to the short, strict deadlines in place, it is important to have a firearms attorney on your side as soon as possible after a PICS denial.

You should ABSOLUTELY NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES try to buy a gun to see if you can legally own or possess firearms. In Pennsylvania, you can be charged with a felony if you are prohibited. Many people have made this costly mistake over the years. Even if a police officer or a gun store employee tells you otherwise, they would certainly not be willing or able to pay your legal fees and serve your criminal penalties in your place if you are prosecuted.

How can I find out if I can legally own a gun in Pennsylvania?

When you buy a gun in New Castle Northwest, PA, the dealer must run a background check called a PICS Check (Pennsylvania Instant Check System).

When you are filling out the paperwork to buy a gun or apply for a License to Carry Firearms (concealed carry license) you should NEVER GUESS for any of your answers. If you fail the background check (PICS denial) when you are trying to buy a gun in Pennsylvania, you could face criminal prosecution for a felony! Even if you thought you answered the questions correctly, many people are still prosecuted for their mistake. At The Gun Law Firm, we have performed firearms eligibility investigations for our clients since 2016 to avoid this problem. We thoroughly review our clients’ criminal records, mental health records, and much more to determine whether you can legally own a gun in Pennsylvania.
