State Gun Laws

If the abuser's gun is taken away, what will happen to it?

Under Missouri law, when a person is convicted of a felony, a court can also order that his/her guns be taken away. The guns will then be given to a licensed firearms dealer or back to the lawful owner if the guns do not belong to the convicted person. If the guns are given to a licensed firearm dealer, they will be sold and the proceeds will be given to law enforcement.1
