What To Do After Your Firearm License Is Denied

A person can be denied a gun license for several reasons. Common examples include a felony or misdemeanor conviction, previous commitment to a mental institution, being subject to a restraining order, having a warrant currently against you, or being determined “unsuitable” to carry a firearm by police chief in your jurisdiction

Fortunately, it is possible to restore your gun rights. If your firearm license was denied, there are two ways you can appeal the denial: through the district court or petitioning the Firearm Licensing Review Board.

If your license application was denied – no matter what the reason is – you can appeal the denial at your local district court within 90 days of the denial. After the petition goes through judicial review, you will have an opportunity to go to court before a judge and prove the chief’s decision was “arbitrary and capricious.”

If your license application was denied due to a misdemeanor conviction that carried a sentence of up to two-and-a-half years, you can petition the Firearm Licensing Review Board. However, you are not eligible to petition if the misdemeanor offense involved domestic assault and battery, a drug crime, or a gun crime.
