State Gun Laws

This section has information about who is prohibited from having a gun under Louisiana state gun laws. However, in addition to these state-specific laws, there are also federal gun laws that could apply. To fully understand all of the legal protections available, it is important that you also read the Federal Gun Laws pages.

WomensLaw.org strongly recommends that you get in touch with a domestic violence advocate in your community for more information on gun laws in your area. Go to the LA Places that Help page to find domestic violence organizations and legal help in your area.
