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.1
