Reasons Gun Rights May Be Revoked in Pennsylvania

In Pennsylvania, there are many reasons why you might lose your gun rights. The list is extensive, and firearms laws in Pennsylvania and around the country are only continuing to become more stringent. Reasons your gun rights might be revoked in Pennsylvania include convictions for:

  • Stalking
  • Domestic violence
  • Burglary
  • Robbery
  • Escape from a correctional facility

Other convictions for violent crime, whether felonies or misdemeanors, may also result in the loss of your gun rights in Pennsylvania. Involuntary commitment to a mental health facility may also mitigate your right to own a gun in Pennsylvania.

However, not all criminal charges should prohibit you from accessing your right to own a gun in Pennsylvania. It is best to consult with a prominent Pennsylvania gun rights lawyer to determine if your criminal background does prohibit you from purchasing or owning a firearm. Sometimes, you may be denied the privilege even if your criminal history does not include convictions associated with the cessation of these rights. In these situations, an attorney can help you fight back.
