Do misdemeanors make one a prohibited person?

Title is the question. Do misdemeanor charges make you a prohibited person?

I believe it depends on the misdemeanor. Something about whether or not it carries a max POSSIBLE sentence of two years.
The law? The law is a human institution...

In PA, most first degree misdemeanors (M1) prohibit you at the federal level because the maximum possible sentence is more than two years. There are a few M1s that have a lesser penalty specified within the applicable statute itself, so those are not prohibiting, just as a few felonies are not prohibiting (white-collar-type stuff), as they are specifically exempted under federal law.

I think misdemeanors are also prohibiting at any level, M1, M2 or M3, if they are for domestic violence or drugs, but I'm not 100% certain on that.

I agree on the domestic violence charges. AFAIK, many drug offenses make one ineligible for a LTCF, but to not prohibit them from owning/possessing firearms.
