Washington Supreme Court Rules on Gun Rights Restoration

The Washington State Supreme Court recently ruled individuals who want to have their gun rights restored after a felony conviction must be crime-free for five years, but it doesn’t have to be the five years immediately before they petition.

The majority in the Dennis v. State Case said that because the Petitioner had been conviction-free for more than five years after completing his last felony sentence, he was entitled to have his gun rights restored despite having committed a misdemeanor two years prior to filing the Petition.
