State Gun Laws

February 14, 2022

I have a temporary (ex parte) order against the abuser. Can s/he have a gun?

Arkansas law does not specifically allow a judge to order an abuser to give up his/her firearms in a temporary or final protection order.1 Also, Arkansas state criminal laws do not prohibit firearm possession when there is a temporary or final protection order in place.2
