Question: Can I purchase a rifle even though I have not had my gun rights restored?
Answer: Under A.R.S. § 13-3103, a “prohibited possessor” is any person whose right to possess a firearm has not been stored. The law further provides that a “prohibited weapon” includes a rifle with a barrel length of less than sixteen inches, or shotgun with a barrel length of less than eighteen inches, or any firearm that is made from a rifle or shotgun and that, as modified, has an overall length of less than twenty-six inches. A.R.S. § 13-905 provides that a person who has been convicted of two or more felonies and who has completed their probationary period may apply to restore any civil rights that were lost. Upon application to restore your rights, the superior court judge or the judge’s successors in office from the county that you were convicted may restore your civil rights. The clerk of the superior court will process your application upon your request. However, if you were convicted of a dangerous offense as listed under A.R.S. §13-706.
