State Gun Laws

I have a temporary order against the abuser. Can his/her gun be taken away?

Missouri law tells a judge what protections s/he is allowed to grant someone in a temporary order of protection. Restricting an abuser’s access to have or buy a gun is not included in the list of protections that can be granted in a temporary order.1
