2nd Amendment Firearm Rights
If you have been convicted of a felony, or certain misdemeanors (generally domestic-violence) you will lose your constitutional 2nd amendment right to possess a firearm. Federal law requires that retailers of firearms perform a criminal background check prior to selling a firearm. If you have a felony or domestic violence misdemeanor on your record you will be denied the right to purchase a firearm. Additionally, if you are found to be in possession of a firearm with a criminal record your gun may be confiscated and you will be charged with an additional crime under RCW 9.41.040 for unlawful possession of a firearm.
