    May a non-resident get their gun rights restored in Virginia?

    An increasing percentage of my law practice deals with gun rights restoration. Therefore, it is not surprising that I am frequently asked how, or if, a non-resident may petition to have their gun rights restored in Virginia.


    The typical discussion goes something like this:


    “I lived in Virginia 20 years ago.”


    “While there I was convicted of felony X.”


    “I have since moved to State Y.”


    “State Y requires that I have my rights restored in Virginia before I can get my rights restored in State Y.”


    “How do I do that?”

    Would welcome the offender back into Virginia to pursue restoration of his rights.

    Non-violent offenses should not IMHO carry the same weight, nor be subject to the same process for restoration of RKBA.
