If the abuser's gun(s) is taken away, what will happen to it?
If the judge orders that the abuser’s gun(s) be taken away, you can also ask that the judge order law enforcement to remove the gun(s) when s/he is served with the order. Law enforcement can hold the gun(s) for the period that the order is in effect.1
