WASHINGTON: Domestic Violence Resources



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.

Victim Confidentiality Program: Since 1991, the Address Confidentiality Program (ACP) has helped crime victims (specifically domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking) to stay safe. ACP is designed to prevent offenders from using state and local government records to locate their victims. To participate in the program you must be a survivor of sexual assault, domestic violence or stalking, a resident of the State of Washington, and must have recently moved to a location unknown to your abuser and unknown to government agencies. One component of the program has set up special voter registration and marriage licensing procedures that prevent public access through those records. The program now provides services to underserved populations, including tribal members, deaf and hard-of-hearing victims, and Spanish-speaking victims. The contact number is 1-800-822-1065 or 360-753-2972 or visit http://www.secstate.wa.gov/acp/ for more information.
