Hi,

I'm Zoey.

As long as your possession charge was a misdemeanor, you've completed your probation successfully, and you have had no recent further drug arrests that would cause you to be seen as an addict, there would be no reason that you couldn't be eligible to buy a gun and clear a NICs check. You would also not be denied a carry permit in Arizona on the basis of this conviction.
