Relief from Disability

If you have lost your right to bear a firearm, you may be eligible to seek relief from disability and regain your right to own and possess firearms. A person may lose their right to own and carry firearms if they have been convicted of certain felonies, domestic violence offenses or certain misdemeanors. If you’re obligated to court-ordered mental health commitments, you may also lose your right to bear firearms.

The Ohio Revised Code offers legal guidelines on how people can regain their firearm rights under certain conditions. Here is a brief overview of the eligibility requirements.

Eligibility for Relief From Disability/Right to Bear Arms Restoration

In order to be eligible, you must first file a petition for relief from disability with the Court of Common Pleas in the county where you live. The court will arrange a hearing to review your petition and consider factors such as the nature of your original offense, any evidence of rehabilitation, your behavior since the offense and gauge whether you’re a risk to the general public. We always recommend hiring an attorney for these types of petitions to ensure we can help build a strong case for you. Our objective is to help convince the courts that you meet the criteria and pose no threat, which in turn may grant relief and restore your right to own and possess firearms.
