You Can Now Own a Handheld Gun Anywhere in the United States

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash-You can now own a handheld gun anywhere in the United States.  The United States Supreme Court says Americans do have the right to own guns. 

But what does this mean for Yakima?

People in Yakima have been able to own handheld guns for a number of years so the overturned ban won't change much for Yakima.

Currently, you don't need a license to own a gun.  And you only need a concealed weapons permit if you plan to cover-up your gun. 

So what do you need to know when buying a handheld gun in Yakima?

You must be:

  1. A United States citizen
  2. Resident of Washington
  3. 21 years or older
  4. And you can't have any felony convictions
