State Gun Laws

10 de febrero de 2020

I have a final protective order against the abuser. Can s/he keep a gun or buy a new gun?

New Hampshire state law requires a judge to order the abuser to give up any guns or deadly weapons if the judge finds that the abuser has committed an act of abuse against the victim and issues a protective order.1 The abuser cannot have or purchase any firearms or ammunition while the order is in place. The judge also has the power to issue a search warrant authorizing a peace officer to take (seize) any weapons, firearms and ammunition, if there is probable cause to believe that the defendant didn’t hand them over as ordered.2

Also, federal laws, which apply to all states, restrict a person’s right to have a gun under certain circumstances. Go to Federal Gun Laws to get more information.
