Ex-Felon Possession Of A Firearm

An Ex-Felon in Possession of a Firearm is a Felony offense in Las Vegas, Nevada.  Nevada Revised Statute “NRS” 202.360, prohibits, the ownership or possession of any firearm by a convicted felon, a fugitive from justice or an unlawful user or addict of any controlled substance. To be clear, the felony conviction does not have to be from Nevada, any felony from anywhere in the United States prohibits the ownership or possession of a firearm of this statute, unless an individual has received a pardon from their prior felony offense which does not restrict their right to bear arms.  It is worth noting, it is not a defense to this crime if the weapon was not in working condition, nor is it a defense if the weapon was not loaded with ammunition. Possession of the firearm alone constitutes the crime.


If charged as an ex-felon in possession of a firearm, a fugitive of justice in possession of a firearm or a user or an addict of a controlled substance in possession of a firearm, you will face 1-6 years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000.  Las Vegas Criminal Defense Attorney Michael A.
