Legal Information: Montana
Updated: November 18, 2022
I do not have an order of protection against the abuser, and s/he has not been convicted of any crimes. Can s/he have a gun?
Federal laws, which apply to all states, restrict an abuser’s right to have a gun under other circumstances. Go to Federal Gun Laws to get more information.
For additional information on gun laws in Montana, you can go to the Giffords Law Center website.
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 federal firearm law and how it applies to you: 1-800-903-0111 x 2.
- You can contact a local domestic violence organization in your area - see our MT Advocates and Shelters page.
- You can write to our Email Hotline.
