In California, anyone charged with a domestic violence misdemeanor is prohibited from having or purchasing a gun or ammunition. Any individual can seek a domestic violence protective order against:
- A former or current dating or romantic relationship partner
- Any person who is currently or has in the past resided with an individual
- Any family member, even if that person has never resided with the individual
"Every protective order MUST STATE the person is prohibited from owning, possessing, purchasing, receiving, or attempting to purchase or receive, a firearm while the protective order is in effect". Any firearms the person owns must be surrendered to law enforcement immediately upon request, or within 24 hours if not asked.
