I'm not sure this is the correct forum to post this in, but it seems to be the most appropriate. If not, I apologize.
Does anyone know how difficult it is to restore ones right to bear arms after a felony conviction?
Over 20 years ago, while trying to start a new business in San Francisco, I made some poor choices, did not file the correct documents with the Securities and Exchange Commission and was arrested/convicted of illegally soliciting financial backing. This ended up with me receiving 5 felony (fraud) convictions. (Obviously these were non-violent felonies).
I received a Suspended Sentence, did 6 months of work furlough and 5 years of probation, all of which was completed without incidence.
I recently filed an application for a permit to acquire a handgun here in the state of Hawaii and was denied because I had the felonies on my rap sheet.
What are the chances of my ever getting my right to own/purchase a handgun again?
Thanks for any advice any of you can pass my way.
