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

Trying to understand both federal and state law can be confusing but there are people out there who can help you better understand the law and your rights under the law.  You can:

  • Contact the National Center on Protection Orders and Full Faith & Credit to get more information about the firearm laws and how they apply to your situation: 1-800-903-0111 x 2.
  • Contact a local domestic violence organization in your area - see our KY Advocates and Shelters page.
  • Write to our Email Hotline.
