PFA and Guns Pittsburgh Attorneys
A PFA is more than just a “no-contact” order. It can evict you from your home and take away your children. Additionally, a PFA can restrict your Second Amendment right to own guns for hunting and personal safety.
Pennsylvania law authorizes courts to confiscate a PFA defendant’s firearms, ammunition, and firearms license even prior to the PFA hearing. The mere accusation of abuse can result in seizure of your guns and any other weapons even in cases of alleged stalking and harassment where a firearm was not involved.
Spivak Law Firm advises PFA defendants on how to protect their Second Amendment right to possess firearms. For more information, call us at (412) 344-4900 or toll free at (800) 545-9390.
Relinquishing Firearms in PFA Cases
If you’ve been served with a temporary PFA or if a final PFA was entered in your case, you may have just 24 hours to surrender your guns, weapons, ammunition, and firearms license to your local sheriff’s office. Ignoring a court order to relinquish your guns could result in up to ten (10) years imprisonment under federal law.
Under Pennsylvania law, PFA defendants may no longer give their guns to a friend or family member for safekeeping. To speak with an experienced PFA defense attorney, call Spivak Law Firm at (412) 344-4900 or toll free at (800) 545-9390.
