I have a record in Illinois from almost two decades ago and would like to know how to get my second amendment rights back?
Hello and welcome to the community! I would consult with an attorney, or speak with the state’s attorney in the county the charges were filed.
Welcome to the family brother @Zach15 and God bless you. Try to see an attorney about getting it expunged.
Welcome to the Community @Zach15 .
There has been always single answer for such questions:
“contact State’s Attorney”.
Even we have a lot of knowledgeable Members here, I don’t think you want to count on “internet advices” in such matter.
Additionally each case may be different and you never find strict answer.
Welcome and good luck Zach. I know some great people, now model contributing citizens, who had made a mistake in their younger days.
Welcome to the Community @Zach15. The best option to attempt to have your rights restored is to have your record expunged.
I would also recommend reaching out to an attorney to assist you in this process! For your convenience, here is a resource you may use to search for an expungement attorney in your area: https://www.avvo.com/expungement-lawyer.html

Everyone has been amazing giving great advice and resources! I’m in contact with an attorney and will be doing what I can afford to do to get them expunged!
