Can you buy a shotgun if you have a warrant for traffic tickets that you got outstanding failure to appear on?

I got 2 tickets. Had 2 traffic court summons because of them & i never went to neither. One is driving without a license & a marijuana possession charge. The Other is just driving without a license. They were both in CA. Can i still buy an age 18 & over shotgun? Other than an unpaid parking ticket added to my car on a totally different day my record is clean. I don't think any of those tickets were even misdemeanors but I'm not sure?

You WILL not be able to buy a shotgun. You backed out of paying your tickets and there is a warrant out for you somewhere. You will eventually get caught again and when you do it's off to jail.
Flaking out on your tickets was stupid and childish. Now you won't be able to buy a shotgun or any other kind of gun.

Are you serious?

You are a fugitive.

Lawyer up and deal with those tickets; it's ridiculous to spend the rest of your life running away from some silly tickets.

It depends on where you live.

Most states do not require any type of background check, licensing, or permit to purchase a shotgun.

Here in Colorado, as long as you are 18 years old, you can legally walk into any Walmart and buy as many shotguns and ammunition as you can carry regardless of your record.
