Protecting Gun Owners' Rights In Michigan

Gun Rights

America's gun laws have become a complex set of local, state and federal regulations that can be confusing to gun owners, experienced police officers, prosecutors and even constitutional lawyers. Every year, numerous innocent gun owners in Michigan face false arrest for a wide variety of charges. It seems that just as many well-meaning people get arrested for buying or carrying one without knowing it was illegal for them to do so.

Attorney Steven Howard Knows The Mistakes Police Make

When facing an legal matter related to gun crimes or gun rights in Michigan, talk to attorney Steven Howard, Esq., in Lansing. He is a third-generation gunsmith with a degree in gunsmithing; a recognized weapons specialist; and has testified as an expert witness in many criminal cases involving guns charges. He is also a former U.S. Border Patrol Agent and Federal Police Officer with the Department of Defense. Today, Steven teaches classes on gun ownership for Michigan's conceal and carry weapons (CCW) permit classes and has received a Certificate of Merit for classroom excellence as well as instruct Police agencies how to properly perform gun procedures.

Needless to say, Steven takes gun ownership rights and responsibilities more seriously than most of his colleagues in the legal profession. If you are under investigation for any charge related to possession and/or use of a firearm, it makes sense to hire an attorney who understands the foundation of our country's gun laws.

"A conviction for any type of charge involving a gun also means you will be handed an unfair reputation as a possible violent criminal. By knowing guns — and gun ownership rights — I work hard to prove that legally carrying a firearm doesn't make you a threat to society." Attorney Steven Howard

Steven's experience protecting people charged with misdemeanor and felony guns and weapons charges in state and federal court includes cases related to:

  • Driving with a gun
  • Possession of a gun without a license
  • Carrying a firearm without a concealed pistol license
  • Having the wrong type of firearm in the wrong place in the car with or without a permit
  • Having knives that are too long
  • Having firearms incorrectly stored or placed in a vehicle
  • Brandishing a firearm
  • Illegal discharge of a firearm
  • Firearms permit and rights reinstatement

Restoring Your Right To Bear Arms

In Michigan, persons may lose their conceal and carry weapons (CCW) permit for a variety of reasons. Nationally, anyone convicted of a felony automatically loses their right to own or possess a firearm. If you are seeking restoration of your CCW permit or gun ownership rights, Steven is ready to help. While it is currently not possible to fully restore gun ownership rights with a felony conviction on your record, there are some rights that are possible to get back.
