Both state and federal laws regulate the possession, purchase, sale and transfer of firearms. Many people, including convicted felons, undocumented immigrants, people who have been convicted of domestic violence or people who are subject to a domestic violence restraining order, are prohibited from possessing firearms.
Violations of these laws can be very serious crimes. In the most serious cases, judges are required to impose mandatory minimum jail sentences of 15 years to life in prison. Almost all weapons offenses are felonies. Additionally, many other types of crimes are punished more severely when they are committed with the use of a gun or other deadly weapon.
