Hello,

As your felony was not a crime of violence enumerated under Kan. Stat. Ann. 21-4704, your state gun right should have been automatically restored to you 5 years after the completion of your sentence. Kan. Stat. Ann. 21-4204(a)(3).

Whether or not the Federal government will honor your expungement and remove the bar against your Federal gun rights, is another matter. They should, but the only way to find out for sure would be to try to purchase a gun and see if you can clear the NICs check.
