Domestic Violence Incidents

Montana law requires a peace officer responding to a call about a partner or family member assault to seize a weapon used or threatened to be used in the alleged assault.1 See the Montana Domestic Violence & Firearms section for further information.

Montana has no other laws requiring the surrender or removal of firearms from persons who have become prohibited from possessing them.
