What is the name of your state? Florida but felonies in New York
I am a convicted felon in New York State. I received a certificate of good conduct years ago. It's been 10 years since my last conviction. Both felonies were "white collar crimes" (embezzlement & grand larceny), no violent or drug offenses ever. I now live in Florida state where a person has the right to own a firearm for the protection of home and business. I would like my rights restored. I recently wrote to the division of parole to see if they could please remove that restriction that was typed on my parole papers and certificate of good conduct but they responded with a quick "No". My question is what can I do to get my rights restored? I think they just don't want to be bothered and have not seriously looked at my situation or record. Florida state law says they I can own a firearm as an ex-convicted felon, if my rights are restored. I am now a responsible citizen who simply wants to protect his family and business in a state that fully extends that privilege to its' residents.
