Firearm possession after a conviction

Fight Your DUI Charges. Contact Us Today.

If you or someone you know is facing criminal charges in Nebraska, one of the things on your mind at this time may well be the long-term consequences of a potential conviction. Depending on the nature of the charges, a conviction might involve a person performing community service and paying a fine or it might involve a person spending many years in prison among other penalties. 

Whether or not a person ends up being incarcerated, there may come a day when they are able to start rebuilding their life within society. At this time, things like the ability to get a job or a place to live might be impacted by having a criminal record. So too the person's right to own or possess a firearm may be influenced by the previous criminal activity.

As explained by the Nebraska Legislature, anyone who has previously been convicted of a felony crime is not legally allowed to possess a firearm. In Nebraska, the law defines a firearm as any type of weapon from which a projectile may be expelled. This may happen by the original design of the item or through some form of conversion of the item. In addition, anyone who has been convicted of a misdemeanor domestic violence offense within the prior seven years is not allowed to possess a firearm. 

If you would like to learn more about your rights when it comes to firearms after you have been convicted of a felony offense, please feel free to visit the firearm law page of our Nebraska criminal defense website.
