I was court martialed for possession under a general court

Customer Question

I was court martialed for possession under a general court martial and was wondering if I would be able to do something to either get my gun rights restored or find out if I still have them.
JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in?
Customer: It happened in Washington state
JA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?
Customer: I have been out for over 6 years
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Not that I can think of

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
I am afraid the only way to get the rights restored for a court martial would be to apply for a Presidential Pardon through the US Department of Justice Office of Pardon Attorney and seek a pardon with full restoration of rights. There are no other provisions in the law to restore your rights. See: https://www.justice.gov/pardon
