Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

What exactly were you charged with 40 years ago?

Criminal Lawyer: Thelawman2, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

The new law in Missouri (while expanding the convictions under which you can seek expungement), does not permit expungement of a class A felony. Therefore, expungement to restore your gun rights is not going to be available. As a result, your only other available avenue is to seek an executive pardon from the Governor in order to restore your rights to possess a firearm.
