After the hearing, your job is done. You get to go to the range to shoot a gun for the first time since your felony conviction.
My job is not yet done.
After a gun rights petition is granted, I follow-up with the Virginia State Police to ensure that the appropriate records are updated with the restoration order. You will receive copies of this information.
Also, I will give you lengthy instructions on various issues that you might encounter (e.g., buying a gun from a gun store; carrying a gun on a daily basis; applying for a CHP; carrying a gun in other states; buying / selling a gun in a private transfer, etc.). After we discuss all of this information, I will follow-up with a written email so that you can refer to these instructions as needed.
