Groundbreaking Reinstatement of Gun Rights

In what appears to be the first in recent history, Attorney Chris Connelly fought to have the firearm rights restored for a client who been involuntarily committed to a mental health institution. The client had been briefly committed during a tough time in his life many years ago.  Nonetheless, this commitment barred him under NCGS 14-404 from ever possessing any firearm. Attorney Connelly fought for him by petitioning under NCGS 14-409.42 that he was no longer a danger to the community, showing that he had now been sober and healthy for many years, was a man of faith with many stable, supportive relationships, was gainfully employed and owned his own company. This type of petition had not been done in Charlotte, Mecklenburg County in anyone's memory so it necessitated collaborating with the court clerk's office to laboriously devise a procedure from the ground up to bring it to fruition. The Order restoring the client's right to bear arms was signed and the client looks forward to being able to protect himself and his family once again after being statutorily barred for so long.
