Kansas law does not:

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