Missouri law does not:

  • Prohibit individuals convicted of domestic violence misdemeanors from purchasing or possessing firearms or ammunition, unlike federal law ;
  • Prohibit individuals subject to domestic violence protective orders from possessing firearms or ammunition, unlike federal law ;
  • Require courts to notify people when they become prohibited from possessing firearms or ammunition under state or federal law due to domestic violence;
  • Require the surrender of firearms or ammunition by people who have become prohibited from possessing them under state or federal law due to domestic violence; or
  • Explicitly authorize or require the removal of firearms or ammunition at the scene of a domestic violence incident.1
