Question: can i "set aside" my record if it was a felony conviction for "misconduct involving weapons"

Answer:

You may want to read the article on this website titled, "Setting Aside Convictions and Restoring Civil Rights." That article explains the general procedures for setting aside convictions and also summarizes a portion of A.R.S. § 13-907. The article states:

Who might be able to set aside a conviction in Arizona?
A set aside may be available if a person was convicted of a felony in an Arizona Superior Court and that person has an absolute discharge from probation or prison. If a person is convicted of a misdemeanor in a Justice or City Court and successfully completes all court orders, that person might be eligible to have the conviction set aside.

                A set aside is not available to a person convicted of a criminal offense:
    1.  Involving the infliction of serious physical injury, 
    2.  Involving the use or exhibition of a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument, 
    3.  For which the person is required or ordered by the court to register as a sex offender, A.R.S. § 13-3821
    4. For which there has been a finding of sexual motivation under A.R.S. § 13-118  
    5.  In which the victim is a minor under 15 years of age, or 
    6.  In violation of A.R.S. § 28-3473, any local ordinance relating to stopping, standing or operation of a vehicle or title 28, chapter 3, except a violation of §28-693 or any local ordinance relating to the same subject matter as A.R.S. § 28-693.
