Hello,

Arizona restores all of your civil rights except firearms right upon the completion of your sentence. You would be able to petition your judges for restoration of your firearms rights. There's a waiting period, but these are old felonies so you should be able to do so immediately. Given that you have two felonies, it would be best that you have a lawyer prepare and argue the petition.

As all your other rights are already restored, if the state restores your gun rights too, the Federal government should lift their bar against your rights as well. If the federal government doesn't recognize the restoration of your state rights -- as it sometimes won't when the felony is still on your record -- or should the petition fail, you would have to get your felonies pardoned by the governor. You can find out more about the pardon process here. in the attachment.
