SECTION 4853-4854

4853.  In all cases in which a full pardon has been granted by the
Governor of this state or will hereafter be granted by the Governor
to a person convicted of an offense to which the pardon applies, it
shall operate to restore to the convicted person, all the rights,
privileges, and franchises of which he or she has been deprived in
consequence of that conviction or by reason of any matter involved
therein; provided, that nothing herein contained shall abridge or
impair the power or authority conferred by law on any board or
tribunal to revoke or suspend any right, privilege or franchise for
any act or omission not involved in the conviction; provided further,
that nothing in this article shall affect any of the provisions of
the Medical Practice Act (Chapter 5 (commencing with Section 2000) of
Division 2 of the Business and Professions Code) or the power or
authority conferred by law on the Board of Medical Examiners therein,
or the power or authority conferred by law upon any board that
issues a certificate which permits any person or persons to apply his
or her or their art or profession on the person of another.

4854.  In the granting of a pardon to a person, the Governor may
provide that the person is entitled to exercise the right to own,
possess and keep any type of firearm that may lawfully be owned and
possessed by other citizens; except that this right shall not be
restored, and Sections 12001 and 12021 shall apply, if the person was
ever convicted of a felony involving the use of a dangerous weapon.
