Hey sir. I saw on here that you are an attorney that can help with rights restoration, I am 31yrs old. Married and have 2 kids. I would like to give you my scenario and see what you say. I was convicted of a class 2 felony for burglary while I was hiking in illinois a few years back. Lawyer backed out if I took the case to trial, so I took a plea bargain to be able to move to Texas for work. Since have not been in any trouble at all. When I was hiking someone called and said that someone was in the area breaking into buildings to steal copper wire, however the only thing that I had in my possession was a scrap metal ticket from several months prior to my arrest. Also metal scrapped was acquired by my father who was a construction business owner. Anyways only felony on my record, And cannot seem to get an answer on this matter. I would like to be able to buy firearms for home protection and sport shooting. Please call/text me if u can, 9713044440. Or email me at patrick_cindyr510@yahoo.com

This law can be kind of misleading

I just called James O'Rourke (Gun Rights Attorney, Restoration of Gun Rights Lawyer Portland, OR Criminal Defense Lawyer)

Turns out this law can be kind of misleading. It doesn't give felons their rights back. It only lowers the crime of possession to a misdemeanor. He said the only way to restore your rights is to apply to have the felony expunged.

I know this is a pretty old thread, but anyone looking, as I did, for information on this topic may find it and wonder.

Interesting about this Oregon law. I figured if you had a Felony of ANY kind you couldn't buy or posses a gun period.

A close friend of mine who had a felony many years ago just bought his first gun. I don't know if he had it expunged from his record or what type of crime it was.

No matter what though, if in doubt talk to a lawyer. No joke!

Gun questions in Oregon

Here goes nothin'?! I see where there is a conflict.....in Oregon ex-felons, depending on the details of the case, can buy and own a firearm legally after 15 years (since the crime, or the disposition or since probation ended?) as long as they have not been in any trouble since then, but.....the federal government restricts ALL ex-felons from ever owning a gun period....I know that a federal task force like Home Land Security left Oregon a few years back because they would not allow any Oregon law persons on the task force and Oregon would not cooperate being out of the loop, if memory serves. I know all ex-felons are "innocent"...but there are a few who actually are victims of circumstances often beyond their control like having a domestic issue turned into something it wasn't because it occurred around the time when OJ did his thing?! I am reaching out to "thuegli" for some advice regarding gun issues. For example; I was told recently that if an ex-felon even touches a gun, they have committed a crime. Is that true? Thought the Fed background check was designed to keep felons and other violent offenders form obtaining a gun? So, if an ex-felon (wobbler) goes to a Gun Show and handles a gun of any type, they are guilty of a felony? If an ex-felon goes out to the woods to go shooting with his brother-in-law, they are also guilty? Anyway, please reply or PM me "thuegli" and perhaps we can answer a few questions. I tried to find a way to PM and being brand new on this site, can't seem to find it. By the way, anybody who KNOWS, feel free to answer any of my questions please...

I am in Alaska now but moving to Oregon soon, we have very similar gun law for felons as Oregon has. Feds could but won't go after felons that have weapons under the state law. I would think if someone did a federal crime, like bank robbery and were caught now, the feds would take over and prosecute for possession of a gun as well as the robbery. I do know, that I can not go in a gun shop and purchase, and can not win a gun at a DU or other function because they require the federal paperwork and clearance. I can however buy at gun shows and classified ads with no problem. I have hunted for years with no problem. Moving to Oregon and will continue to hunt. Not a gun nut, only have 2 shotguns and a rifle. Guns for me are a tool, not a way of life.
