Getting an AZ CCW Despite a Prior Felony Conviction…

September 2, 2009 AZ CCW Laws, CCW Administrative Rules, State Firearms Laws No Comments

Question: I had a felony when I was 18 and have since had all rights returned to me.  I own several firearms, a silencer and a SBR that I did all the paperwork on with no issues, but someone had told me that just because the federal government passes me to own firearms AZ can deny me to have a CCW.  Is this true or can I legally get an AZ CCW.  I have never pursued it because I didnt want to waste my time and money.  Thanks in advance for any info that you can provide.

Answer: Since you have had your civil rights restored including your rights to own a firearm, you have no issue getting an Arizona CCW.  Arizona used to unconditionally deny convicted felons a CCW permit.  The law changed in 2008 permitting those with a prior felony conviction whose right had been restored to get an Arizona CCW if they meet all the other qualifications.  If you’d like to sign up for a class, we give a really good one.
