If I have had a Woodside PICS Denial in the past, will I be denied again?

If you have had a PICS denial in the past, the chances are you will be denied again. There are some reasons why a person can be temporarily prohibited from possessing firearms, but these situations are more rare. Even if your PICS denial is based upon inaccurate information, the Pennsylvania Instant Check System (PICS) will still contain that information without a successful challenge. That is why it is so important to handle a PICS denial or undetermined status with a sense of urgency and contact an experienced firearms attorney as soon as possible.

How long does a Woodside, PA Pardon take in Pennsylvania

How long does a Woodside, PA Pardon take in Pennsylvania

Even if you are a good candidate, the downside is a Pardon doesn’t happen overnight. The process, from start to finish, typically takes 3-5 years. Though that may seem like a long time, you have to understand that waiting longer will not make the process go faster. So if you are a good candidate for a Pardon, it is best to start as soon as possible rather than letting the wait time discourage your efforts and simply drag the process out even longer.

What is the difference between a Woodside, PA PICS Denial and an Undetermined Status?

What is the difference between a Woodside, PA PICS Denial and an Undetermined Status?

Functionally, there is no difference between a PICS denial and an undetermined status. You are still subject to the same deadlines and will still need a successful PICS Challenge to proceed with your purchase or License to Carry Firearms (concealed carry license). Because of that, you should treat an undetermined status with the same approach and sense of urgency that you would a PICS denial. In the technical sense, with an undetermined status the PICS Challenge Unit will need additional information to make a determination. With a PICS denial, the PICS Challenge Unit believes it has information that serves as a basis for denial. It is important to note that neither of these designations suggest any particular outcome. A person who has been denied may not be prohibited, and a person with an undetermined status may in fact be prohibited. Again, you should treat them each with the same approach and sense of urgency.

What if my Woodside, PA PICS denial investigation shows that I can’t legally own a gun?

What if my Woodside, PA PICS denial investigation shows that I can’t legally own a gun?

An investigation by an experienced firearms attorney is always valuable after a PICS denial, even if it turns out you are prohibited from possessing firearms and can’t legally own a gun. There are two primary areas of concern after a PICS denial when a person is in fact prohibited: 1) criminal prosecution, and 2) restoration of rights. If you fail the background check (PICS denial) when you are trying to buy a gun in Pennsylvania, you could unfortunately face criminal prosecution for a felony. Even if you thought you answered the questions correctly, many people are still prosecuted for their mistake. It is important to never make any statements to the police about your case without a lawyer present who is very familiar with firearms laws. There also may be an avenue to restore your rights if you are prohibited. At The Gun Law Firm, we have helped people restore their firearms rights since our inception.
