Restoration of Gun Rights
Restoration of Gun Rights in Florida requires an application with the Board of Clemency. In Jacksonville, Florida, a convicted felon does not have certain civil rights, including the right to possess or use guns, firearms, or ammunition. Typically, a Florida resident has the right to own firearms (guns), right to vote, serve on a jury, hold public office, and obtain an occupational license. However, if you are a Florida resident and a convicted felon, you probably lost the right to purchase or possess a firearm (gun). Even if you have had your civil rights restored, the right to own guns or firearms is different.
So, how do I get my gun rights back in Florida? Is there a solution to getting your firearms rights restored in Florida? YES, a convicted felon in Florida may be able to regain their firearms rights. Restoring your firearms rights will permit you to own, possess, and purchase guns in Florida or other states. In Florida, restoration of your firearms rights is a type of clemency.
