Convictions for Alaska misdemeanor offenses, other than domestic violence assault or domestic violence reckless endangerment, do not trigger firearm prohibitions. Prohibitions arising from domestic violence assault convictions are lifetime prohibitions. A State Governor or the President of the United States granting a pardon for a domestic violence assault conviction – with the terms of the pardon not restricting the right to possess firearms or ammunition – would lift the prohibition arising from that conviction. Prohibitions arising from the issuance of court orders, including domestic violence protective orders, are dependent on the terms of the order. Prohibitions arising from domestic violence protective orders remain in effect indefinitely unless later expressly dissolved by separate court order.
