How Domestic Violence Charges Affect Your Rights
Domestic violence can result in loss of firearm rights in two ways:
- Conviction or guilty plea to a misdemeanor domestic violence charge
- Placement under an extended order of protection
The specific domestic violence charges that can result in gun loss are:
- Sexual assault
- False imprisonment
- Using force or threat to obtain compliance
- Unlawful or forcible entry
Domestic violence does not just involve your immediate family. The term “domestic” can include a former girlfriend, boyfriend or spouse, any person who lives with you, the mother or father of your child and/or their subsequent children, or any person related by blood or marriage.
