Default Getting your rights restored

Hello,

My boyfriend served 3 years in prison and has 2 felonies on his record. He petitioned the court to get his rights restored because the Judge told him that he could. He just got the letter telling him that all his rights have been restored except the one he most wanted. The right to own a fire arm. He likes to hunt. Has anyone successfully gotten all there rights restored????

Thank you in advance for all your advice and input..

It won't matter if California restores his right to be in posession of a firearm. Court interpretation of federal law refuses to acknowledge restoration of that right by a state so he would still be in violation of federal law if he posesses a firearm or ammunition.

Honestly, it doesn't hurt to ask the feds.

Wont do any good to go to the ATF. That department of the ATF hasnt been funded for decades and they will not process the paperwork for restoration of rights

Only other choice is ask a lawyer, I suppose.

I had an expungement and the department of justice says I can posses a firearm, but I've got no need for that. I get all my food from the police office and if I am in danger, the police station is less than five blocks from my house. What I want most is a decent job, and because California has a flawed exungement law, none of my college degrees are worth anything to me when applying for a government job.
