A: If your guns were confiscated as a result of a domestic violence protective order (DVO), the recent decision in the Eastern federal court regarding gun confiscation in DVOs may affect your ability to retrieve them. You may want to consult with a lawyer familiar with the specifics of your case and the relevant laws in your jurisdiction to determine the best course of action to take.
