What a lot of men do not realize, is that if a woman obtains a civil order for protection from domestic violence (which are NEVER heard before juries and usually most guys just agree to the entry of the order rather than fight it in court), under federal law, the man loses his constitutional right to keep and bear arms, as far as the federal and state law goes. If you get caught with a gun (hunting rifle, pistol, whatever) and there is an Order for Protection from DV with your name on it, you will be arrested and charged with a crime and your gun(s) confiscated. Argue that it is "unconstitutional" all you want, the cop isn't gonna listen to you. And, the court will not be sympathetic. Prosecutors go after DV cases with a vengeance, and the courts back them up almost every time.
