MY ABUSER HAS A GUN

If you have a current Protection From Abuse Order (PFA) from a court against your abuser, or if your abuser has been convicted of a felony or domestic violence misdemeanor, then Federal law states that it is illegal for your abuser to buy or have a gun in their possession.

You MUST ASK THE JUDGE to specifically write in your order that the abuser cannot buy or have a gun while the order is in effect and to require that your abuser to give any guns to the police, or require the police to go to the abuser's house and get them. The guns then go to either the county sheriff or court clerk of stolen property. The district attorney in the county where the gun(s) was taken away can then file to have them destroyed.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the domestic violence agency in your area immediately.

Address Confidentiality: Safe at Home Program.

This program helps victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking by offering two service components: a substitute address service and a protected records service. These services limit the ability to access public information which could identify the new location of a victim. Participants use a substitute address when creating records with state or local government agencies; including voting (as a Blind Ballot Absentee Voter), getting a driver's license, getting married and registering births; without fear that those records will put them at risk of being located by their perpetrator. For more information visit the Safe at Home website or call 802-828-0586.
