State Gun Laws
Below is information about state gun laws in Pennsylvania. A PFA order or criminal conviction may make it illegal for an abuser to have a gun. 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.
Please consider getting in touch with a domestic violence advocate in your community for more information on gun laws in your area. Go to our PA Places that Help to find an organization near you.
