How do I restore my gun rights after a 72 hour involuntary hold?

Asked over 1 year ago - West Saint Paul, MN

I was held for a 72 hour involuntary hold for being a danger to myself and/or others when I was 17 years old. It's been a few years now and I was recently denied my Permit To Purchase Firearms because of the hold. How do I go about restoring my right to own a firearm?

    Answered . Hello. To address this issue, in my opinion, you would need privately to confer with an attorney. The attorney would discuss the entire incident with you in great detail, view relevant documentation and research governing law. All the best.
