What is the penalty for violating state firearm laws?
Anyone who has been convicted of a felony and has or buys a gun in violation of Oklahoma state law can charged with a felony and can be punished by a prison sentence of up to ten years.1
If the judge specifically ordered that the abuser cannot have a gun as part of your protective order, and the abuser has a gun anyway, s/he could be arrested for violating the provisions of a protective order. The penalty for this sort of crime is a misdemeanor that is punishable by a fine of up to $1,000, up to one year of jail time, or both.2 The penalties for violating a protective order increase if the abuser has violated a protective order in the past or causes physical injuries to the victim when violating a protective order.3
