Can a convicted felon ever possess a firearm?

Back to Miami Criminal Defense Attorney Frequently Asked Questions

Video Transcription

The answer is very simple, no. If you’ve been convicted of a crime, state or federal, that is classified as a felony. It is a federal felony, and in almost every state a state felony as well, for a convicted felon to possess a firearm and in the federal courts that includes even ammunition. So be smart, consult a criminal defense lawyer who is knowledgeable on guns, and gun crimes so that you know how to protect yourself so you’re not charged. It’s very, very serious for a convicted felon to be charged, and convicted of possession of a firearm.

In addition you might have questions like, “Well, gee-whiz, I’m married, my wife’s never been in trouble before. We want a gun in our home to protect ourselves, even though I’m a convicted felon. Is that possible?” What about, “Can I go to a gun show, even though I don’t possess a gun? Can I own a knife? Is knife considered a weapon that I can be charged for?” These are the kinds of questions that criminal defense lawyers who are knowledgeable about weapons, about guns, can answer for you. Just being a lawyer, or just being a criminal defense lawyer doesn’t qualify a lawyer on issues involving gun crimes, possession of guns, use of guns, self-defense, stand-your-ground, or any of those items.
