Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Hello. I am Colleen. I am an attorney and I will be helping you with your question.
It depends on when you were released from your sentence.
Are you still on probation or parole?
After 5 years of being released from parole or probation....your fifth anniversary....you can have a gun.
There is an application you would have to fill out to get your civil rights restored
Section 46.04 of the Texas Penal Code allows you to get your gun rights restored as longer as 5 years has passed after you finished your sentence.
Contact the Sheriff's office. I believe they have the application. I hope I have helped. Do you have any further questions?
Are you still there Anthony?
You can also submit a application for the restoration of your civil rights to the Texas Board of Pardons and Parole. If they deny the application, you can apply again after 1 year.
I hope you are satisfied with my help. If you are, can you please rate my service? I wish you luck.
I would need you to accept the answer and rate me. I would appreciate it. Good luck. I hope the information I provided you will help. Regards, Colleen
