Every person convicted of a domestic violence crime in Washington State is prohibited from owning and carrying a firearm, even including those who might carry a gun as part of their employment, such as police officers or members of the military. At the time of the domestic violence conviction, a person will be asked to hand over any gun licenses as turn in any firearms. This restriction is permanent, although you may petition the court at a later date to reinstate your right to carry a firearm. Have you been faced with a domestic violence charge?
