Felon Charged with Possession of a Firearm
Get Defense from an Atlanta Criminal Defense Attorney
There are numerous gun crime laws in Georgia. The slightest misstep while
in possession of a weapon can leave a person culpable. For those who have
had previous convictions on their record, state law does not allow that
individual to carry a weapon, nor can they carry ammunition.
Don't have your rights taken away if you are facing the possibility
of weapon possession charges.

Federal Law Provides Exception
Luckily, our attorneys have experience working with both state and federal
courts. Under federal law, if a person who was convicted by the state
had their offense pardoned or overturned, and the individual is allowed
to freely partake in the average citizen's rights, then that person
may be allowed to possess a firearm.
These civil rights include:
- Serving on a jury
- Hold public office
- The right to vote
- Obtain certain professional licenses
After a criminal conviction, many of the rights above are taken away, including
the right to purchase and own a firearm, even in one's own private
home. That is why you must speak with our Atlanta criminal defense attorneys
to ensure that you are protected if you were wrongly accused or if you
believe your rights violated.
