How do I get a gun violence restraining order?

The steps to get a gun violence restraining order are similar to the steps to get a domestic violence restraining order, but you will fill out different forms.  When filing a petition for a gun violence restraining order, you must describe the number, types, and locations of any firearms and ammunition you believe the respondent currently possesses or controls.* 

* Cal. Penal Code § 18107
