how long dose it take to regain your 2nd amendment rights after you are given a full governor pardon

Congratulations! California has perhaps the most difficult laws in respect to regaining your Second Amendment Rights, but you've cleared the most difficult hurdle, a pardon from the Governor.

The next step is to consult your attorney... you shouldn't be charged much since the heavy lifting has already been done.

G'luck... no go and offend no more.

I can answer questions about Handguns, Rifles, Ammunition, the Firearms Industry, the "gunzine game," practical accessories for self-defense (CCW) handguns; rumor control on firearms myths, errata on the "gunshop grapevine."

I am NOT an Attorney, and nothing I provide here should be relied upon as legal advice. Therefore, please do NOT make inquiries about Criminal Justice issues... this is the Second Amendment topic.

Nor do I do "Private Consultations." Want to made it "private," retain an attorney.
