A: In Arizona, felons are generally prohibited from possessing firearms, including flare guns, if their felony conviction has not been set aside or their civil rights restored. This prohibition is based on federal and state laws that restrict firearm ownership for individuals with felony convictions.

While a flare gun is not considered a traditional firearm, it can still be classified as a "destructive device" under federal law. Federal law prohibits the possession of destructive devices by individuals with felony convictions.
