Unfortunately you most likely will not be able to able to purchase a firearm, even though this is out of state from where the incident occurred.

The reason is that a national/ federal background check, which will be run, will show the outstanding warrant and that will flag your application.

I'm not sure what the misdemeanor charge is or the status of that case, but you can consider hiring an attorney in Minnesota to address it and hopefully resolve it favorably on your behalf. Depending on the situation, this could even be resolved without the need for you to appear in court in person.

Once the Minnesota case is resolved, you should no longer have any problems getting cleared for the firearm purchase.

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!
