  1. Question with regard to LTC disqualification. What if the Massachusetts 1994 OUI arrest date was prior to the enactment of the increased penalties ie. arrested in April ’94 convicted June ’94? If the crime was committed on a date without knowledge of pending increased consequences but the conviction occurred after the newly enacted law would ex post facto apply or am I way off base?

      You are correct. If you were charged prior to the change OUI in the law, you are not prohibited. However, we frequently see this issue come up on NICS denials or LTC denials and clients need our assistance.

    My LTC was approved by the sheriff of my town and sent to Boston for final approval, Boston sent it back to the sheriff saying I was disqualified for a assault and battery charge when I was 17 years old, The sheriff told me to contact an attorney who specializes in these cases to get it approved I am 46 years old now not the same person I was when I was 17 , what can I do to get my LTC that the sheriff had approved?

    I was in a bar room fight 3 months after getting home from the Gulf War where I served on the front lines. I was charged with assault and batters(felony) and served 4 days in a house of correction. That was 30 years ago and I don’t even have a speeding ticket to my name other than this fight. Any chance or getting something done to get my right to carry or even getting the felony overturned or expunged?

    All of my records in New Hampshire have been annulled. Does the ATF acknowledged annulments in New Hampshire as relief and restoration of my second amendment rights.

    I am being denied the purchase of a handgun, due to annulled records. Information was placed on my NICS index over a year after the record was annulled.
    I believe my III index and NCIC index show: No Records.

    Hi. I am looking to restore my rights for an LTC if possible. I had an FID card at 16. It expired in 1998. Since then I have had 4 misdemeanor convictions and a bunch of CWOF/dismissed. I am now 46. My FID card was never revoked or taken. Could you please call me and let me know what the process is and if it’s at all possible to get my rights restored. Thank you so much for your time. Keith

    Hello I live in Saugus. Mt husband and I were separatedast August 2020. His girlfriend at the time got a false restraining order on me. Our first hearing was scheduled for August 26, 2029. However, I was in a motorcycle accident on August 23, 2020 and iin a coma for 2 weeks. She was asked to drop the order but extended it by appearing at the first hearing.
    The order was taken out in dover,, NH. I didn’t have a chance to defend myself. She then tried to get a permanent order in March 17 of 2021. The order was dismissed and I got served with the dismissal the next day. In this process they took gun license and guns away. I have called the Saugus pd several times and emailed to no avail. I’ve been waiting s few weeks now. I would like my gun license back and my guns. I have no prior record of any kind. What do I need to do?
