  1. Not likely. You might consult with a local attorney who has experience in obtaining permits for clients, as opposed to the capability to do so, and ask whether first obtaining a certificate of relief from disabilities would be advantageous.

    Some county court judges will consider such an application accompanied with a letter of explanation, but you should realize the circumstances you describe are a huge hurdle.

    What if judges routinely granted permits to people who had a record of violence, and even just one of those people committed an illegal act while armed?
