Criminal Defense Attorney Anastasia Tramontozzi discusses the two ways to go about getting your gun rights back after being charged with a felony in North Carolina. The easiest way is to have the felony expunged. If the felony is expungable, then your rights are automatically restored. However, there is another option. You can petition the court to restore your firearm rights. Two requirements must be met. Your civil citizenship rights must have been restored for twenty years and the felony has to have been classified as non-violent.
