Why This Site

There is a lot of confusion out there regarding gun ownership, especially in certain states. Ever wondered if a Glock 19 was legal in Massachusetts? Is that AR-15 really California legal? What laws and regulations are there in Illinois for firearm ownership? Do I need a license to carry openly in Iowa, or Alaska?

IsMyGunLegal.com is an ambitious firearms database containing over 4,000 guns of every kind imaginable (mostly by name only at the moment - we are new, but that is rapidly changing! We require your help... more on that down the page!).

Not only will you find hills of information on firearms over the course of the next few months, but information relating to legalities of firearms in your state.

You can also add your own expertise and knowledge to this site.

That's right, you can contribute your own knowledge of firearms and state legalities, or even just gripe about how bad some of the laws are!

Here you can:

  • Add gun profiles
  • Edit existing gun profiles to be more accurate or meaningful
  • Edit state information so that the laws are clear for others
  • Get user feedback on your contributions.
  • Learn about that gun you really want to buy.

Firearm ownership is a serious legal matter. It is our intent to help (READ OUR LEGAL DISCLAIMER - THIS SITE DOES NOT PROVIDE LEGAL ADVICE) provide information that makes firearms ownership less convoluted, especially in famously anti-gun states like California, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey and Illinois.

We Need Your Help!

This website has the potential for massive amounts of data. 4,000 guns spread across 50 states - that is a monumental amount of information! One person cannot do it all by himself.

By the way, we have a points system coming within 2 months of June 8th, 2014. These points are a way to show off how much you know or how much you contribute to gun vernacular. They're like reputation points. You also get nifty profile icons next to your profile name for all to see once your points get high enough. Respect!

Maybe Facebook isn't the greatest place for you to brag about your gun knowhow. Or maybe it is, you can share what you have posted here! Regardless, this website is perfect for you, in any case.

Stay tuned - there are MANY more additions being made to the site. This is an ambitious project and I hope you will be a part of it.
