I am a victim of domestic violence and the abuser has a gun. Do I have legal options for getting the gun away from the abuser?
For any crime involving family violence, where the absuer is arrested, a peace officer should seize (take) all weapons that are alleged to have been involved or threatened to be used in the crime against you.1 Therefore, be sure to tell the officer if the abuser used or threatened to use a gun in any way.
