Prohibited Possessor of a Firearm – Arizona Firearms Attorney Marc J. Victor – Legal Tips


Hey guys my name is Marc J. Victor and
I’m an attorney with the attorneys for freedom law firm here in Chandler
Arizona today’s legal tip is going to be about this whole prohibited possessor
thing what’s a prohibited possessor well stated simply a prohibited possessor is
somebody who can’t have a gun you cannot have a gun you’re prohibited possessor
how do you get to be a prohibited possessor well there is different ways
you can become a prohibited possessor here in Arizona for example you become a
prohibited possessor if you get convicted of any felony offense you
become a prohibited possessor but you can’t have a firearm you can also become
a prohibited possessor if you get convicted of a misdemeanor any
misdemeanor if that misdemeanor is also designated as a crime of domestic
violence don’t blame Arizona for this one this is federal law the federal law
says if you get convicted of even a misdemeanor that’s domestic violence
you’re a prohibited possessor fortunately both of these situations can
be fixed the way to fix the federal disability in Arizona is a set aside
something we call a motion to set aside the judgment of conviction if that’s
granted in Arizona and you don’t have a right to have it granted it’s
discretionary for the judge but if that’s granted it removes the federal
disability and you’re no longer a prohibited possessor in most cases with
the felony conviction under Arizona law after a short wait either two years or
sometimes 10 years you can apply to have your right to possess keep and bear arms
reinstated so you can get that back it’s not a fatal disability however if you’re
a prohibited possessor as a result of another state’s disability some for
example in California if you got convicted of a crime and you are a
prohibited possessor there you’ve got to fix it in California and if you can’t
fix it there you’re going to be in trouble because I
fix it here in Arizona for you okay so there again my name is Marc J. Victor I’m

  1. It would seem that a domestic violence is different the way you worded this.

    Regardless good info.

    Luckily I've got a clean record but I like learning.

    It's pretty scary with all the freedom haters out there.

  2. Ok so how are rights restored if you have a minor federal offense, i.e. military courts martial for posession of marijuana? The Arizona set aside will not affect that correct?
