    So today I was relaxing on the couch, checking out this fnp-45 on my laptop. When all of a sudden there's a knock at my door. It's a cop, to serve me with paperwork. Basically, my girlfriends older daughter doesn't like her mommy being with anyone or taking any attention from her. So she tells her daddy that I'm mean to her and I make her stand in the corner in time-out and so on.

    So he's filed a restraining order against me on the childs behalf. Here's the messed up part. The cop tells me I'm going to court next month on this issue, and that he has to take posssesion of all my firearms and ammunition. He tells me the ammo will likely be destroyed for "safety reasons" and that I may or may not ever get the guns back.

    He goes onto say " you know how you have a drivers license in this state? thats just like your guns, it's a priviledge." I'm so frustrated right now, I can barely think straight.

    Has anyone else experienced anything like this before? I hope I'm posting in the correct forums and that people actually read this one.

    First I never heard of a cop being able to file a TRO on someone behalf (not where I served) Second never heard of a TRO restricting ammo. I would be running to find a lawyer if I were you, not wasting my times asking us.

    Did he already take your stuff?

    If so, did you get an itemized reciept of everything?

    Did you get any of this stuff he told you in writing?

    How would he even know you owned any guns unless you volunteered that information?

    Or if he knew, how would he know how many and of what type?

    I'm not going to hoist the BS flag, but this doesn't sound right. Or if this happened, I'm guessing it was just some dude with a fake badge and you got robbed.

    I agree this just doesn't sound right.

    How old is the daughter? What did her mother say about it?
