Robert Wampler, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Michael Fisher.

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter, Andre´e S. Blumstein, Solicitor General, and Michael A. Meyer, Special Counsel, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): McBRAYER

An individual previously convicted of a felony drug offense petitioned for restoration of his citizenship rights. The trial court restored all his citizenship rights except the right to bear arms. In doing so, the court concluded that Tennessee Code Annotated § 39-17- 1307(b), which makes it an offense for certain persons to possess a firearm, prohibited the court from restoring the right to bear arms. We affirm.
