QUESTION:

After my DUI felony was converted into a mistameater way over, 10 years ago. Can I possess or own a firearms in 1990 I got my fourth DUI. In seven years. Which made that DUI a . In an about 2003 . I had the felony reduced to a mistameaer.. how do I get my rights back to own a firearm. My father passed away and he gave me his firearms. Do I have the right to possess them. And if not can you help me get my rights back to own a firearm.

ANSWER:

If your DUI was converted to a misdemeanor as part of a plea agreement, then you likely never lost your gun rights. If your DUI was converted to a misdemeanor via a successful 17(b) motion after you completed your sentence, then your gun rights were likely restored upon the motion being granted. But this is assuming you had no other disqualifying criminal convictions (which can include misdemeanors) e.g. domestic violence.

The wisest course of action would be to request a Personal Firearm Eligibility Check from the California Department of Justice. https://oag.ca.gov/sites/all/files/agweb/pdfs/firearms/forms/pfecapp.pdf
