Understanding State Firearm Regulations: OA/NASGW State Restrictions App


Overview

Firearm manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers and pawn shops are required to follow both federal laws and state laws. But locating and tracking the laws across all 50 states is a very taxing process. Orchid Advisors and NASGW have developed the State Restrictions Application to consolidate pertinent state regulations and to provide you with updates as the rules change. We do the work for you!
