Under the Florida Office of Executive Clemency, an ex-offender who has “completed all sentences imposed and all conditions of supervision have expired or been completed, for a period of no less than 8 years” may apply for authority to own, possess or use a firearm.

In addition to waiting 8 years, “[y]ou may not have any outstanding detainers or pending charges, owe restitution, or have any pecuniary penalties or liabilities which total more than $1,000 and result from any criminal conviction or traffic infraction.”

If you qualify, you can apply for this authority by using and following the instructions on this form.

Unfortunately, “[i]ndividuals convicted in a federal, military, or out-of-state court are not eligible to apply.” which might present a legal argument.
