Firearms and Weapons Offense Attorney in Shreveport, Bossier City, Monroe, & Ruston, LA
Domestic Abuse Battery Convictions and Firearms
As of 2014, those convicted of domestic abuse battery in Louisiana cannot legally own or carry a gun for a period of ten years after their sentence is complete. A person who has been convicted of domestic abuse battery and is found to possess a firearm before the ten-year period may face criminal penalties:
- Between 1 year and 5 years in a state prison
- Between $500 and $1,000 fines
After ten years, so long as they are not convicted of another domestic abuse battery charge or any felony offense, they will legally be able to own a gun.
