State Gun Laws

I have a stalking or sexual assault protective order. Can the abuser have or buy a gun?

It depends. The federal firearm statute may apply in this case depending on the terms of your order.  See I have a long-term, final protective order against the abuser. Can s/he keep a gun or buy a new gun? for more information on what requirements a protective order has to meet.

You may want to contact a local domestic violence or sexual assault program in your area or an attorney for more information. For links to shelter and advocates in your area, please see our AK Advocates and Shelters page.
