Not every state requires gun owners to register their firearms, but if you live in a state that requires registration, you can find out the exact requirements on your state’s website. You will need to submit an application that includes identifying specific information about you and your firearm.

If you are unable to find information about gun registration on your state’s website, you can also contact your local police department for more information. Some states actually require gun owners to register their guns in person at their local police station rather than online so make sure you are retrieving the correct information. Your local police department can help guide you in the right direct when it comes to registering your gun. You will want to make sure you follow each step accurately to ensure you are legally correct when going through this process.
