Your Gun Rights in Michigan


Both Federal law and Michigan law provides that any person who has been convicted of a felony can not own or possess any kind of firearm. This is why it has been important to us to provide our clients with the best kind of legal defense. 

Is the gun ban absolute?

Depending on whether or not you have been convicted of a misdemeanor or a felony you may want to accept the fact that you have a gun bag for a long period. Generally, the gun ban or the right to obtain a license is denied for a period of 3 to 8 years upon conviction of the selected misdemeanors.
