Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
The problem is that a pardon would be needed as WI law prohibits any convicted felon from possessing a firearm. So, you would have to file a petition for pardon with full restoration of rights, but the problem is that the WI governor has suspended all pardons so right now you cannot get your rights reinstated through a pardon until the WI Pardon and Parole board gets approval from the governor to begin taking applications again.
Without a pardon, I am afraid you would not be able to get your gun rights reinstated.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
