State Gun Laws

Below is information about state gun laws in Washington.  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.  Additionally, Washington also has an Extreme Risk Protection Order that can limit a person's access to guns if s/he poses a danger to self or others.

WomensLaw.org strongly recommends that you get in touch with a domestic violence advocate or lawyer in your community for more information on gun laws in your state. To find an agency, please go to the WA Places that Help page to find help.
