If your 2012 misdemeanor was your first DUI or your second Pennsylvania DUI, then you have not lost either your state or your Federal gun rights and there would be no reason you couldn't purchase a gun in Pennsylvania. If it was your third DUI, however, then that would be a criminal offense for which you could do more than a year in jail, which means you could not purchase a gun.
