Description

Restoration of firearms rights; report to State Police. Provides a mechanism for reporting when a circuit court restores a felon's right to possess a firearm to the Department of State Police. Prior to entry of a restoration order, the petitioner's fingerprints and petition are sent to the Central Criminal Records Exchange (CCRE) and the petitioner's criminal history is forwarded to the court and may be inspected by the attorney for the Commonwealth. If the order is granted, the Department of State Police shall enter the person's name and description in the CCRE so law-enforcement personnel accessing the computerized criminal history files will be aware of the order's existence.
