What is the penalty for violating firearm laws?

Anyone who owns, has, or buys a gun that was previously convicted of attempting to commit or committing a violent felony, or a felony that caused harm to a peace officer is guilty of a felony punishable by imprisonment of up to three years, a fine of up to $5,000, or both.1

In addition, federal law, which applies to all states, makes it illegal to have a firearm when a final order of protection is in place. Go to Federal Gun Laws to get more information.
