I've read through all of this information, and I am still confused. What can I do?

Trying to understand both federal and state gun laws can be confusing, but there are people out there who can help you better understand the law and your rights under the law.  For more information:

  • You can write to our Email Hotline
  • You can contact a local domestic violence organization in your area (see our CA Advocates and Shelters page)
  • You can also contact the National Center on Protection Orders and Full Faith & Credit to get more information about the federal firearm law and how it applies to you: 1-800-903-0111 x 2.
