There are various ways to try to get your gun rights back. The first would be to get your felonies expunged if possible. Here is a link to a plain English version of Louisiana's expungment law
. However, Louisiana is not generous about adult convictions, and you would appear to be ineligible unless your probation was of the sort where the court
dismissed your case once you completed your requrements. And that would likely only remove one of your two.
If I am correct and your old cases are not expungeable, another way you can try to get your gun rights back would be by applying for a governor's pardon. The Louisiana Board of Pardons does the screening for the Governor. Information about that and the application form can be found here
Those first two ways do not require a laywer.
Thirdly, Louisiana automatically restores gun rights ten years after completion of a felon's drug sentence
provided he has not been arrested for another felony. If you don't want to wait all that time, the fourth way Louisian would allow the restoration of your rights is if you are able to obtain a permit from the chief law enforcement officer of your parish. That may be easier said then done with two drug felonies that aren't that old. If you want to go that route you should probably sit down first with a local lawyer who can help you package yourself better despite the convictions.
