The following is provided for general information only. To find out how the law applies to a specific situation, contact an attorney directly. A citizen may lose the right to possess firearms and became a "prohibited possessor." ARS 13-3101, which lists the conditions under which a person may be deemed a prohibited possessor. Whether a person who violates these laws will have to serve time, or how much, may vary based the facts of the case, prior record, and the jurisdiction in which the offense occurred.
