    I know that in my home state, if one has a "restraining order" or a record of domestic violence, the court may order that the offender is not allowed to possess guns.

    The reasonable gun regulation reasonable people desire are already on the books. Let's enforce them and stop this silliness about trying to ban weapons which "look scary". That is a position completely borne of ignorance and fear.

      is not allowed to possess guns? And under what authority does that court have to tell someone that they're not allowed to own a gun? Who enforces it?
      Do the police go to the house of the offender and take his guns?
      You're going to have to try harder than that, Pete.
