I have a temporary (ex parte) protection order against the abuser. Can his/her gun be taken away?

Yes. Nebraska law allows the judge to order that the abuser cannot purchase or possess a firearm in an ex parte protection order.1 If this is something that you want in your order, you may want to specifically mention in your petition that the abuser has firearms in his/her possession.
