You can't possess those in Arkansas as a felon, but air rifles are probably legal.

You can get a pardon from the governor if the conviction was in Arkansas.

Q: Can a state employee sue a private citizen in Arkansas? Is there a statute that states this? Can you cite the statute?
Michael Darren O'Quinn
Michael Darren O'Quinn answered on Aug 26, 2018

It depends. Clearly, a state employee can sue as an individual if a private person has harmed the employee. If the employee is not suing in an individual capacity, but rather for a wrong to the state, then they need state government authorization.
