This is the wording of it.

Proposed new gun legislation:

Intention:

A. Prohibit the purchase of firearms while engaged in dissolution/child custody dispute
B. Prohibit possession of firearms while engaged in dissolution/child custody dispute
C. Require surrender of existing firearms while engaged in dissolution/child custody dispute

Implementation:

A. Require "Firearm Notification" form to be submitted by both parties, addressing:

1. Presence of firearms
2. Purchase of firearms
3. Surrender of firearms
4. Existence of prior or potential domestic violence
5. Law enforcement exception
6. Procedures for return of right to possess firearms (below)
7. CLETS requirement at time of filing case

B. Return of firearms/right to buy and possess

1. Parties file a revocable non-issue form

a. Both parties agree that possession of firearm is non-issue (assent
revocable) by either party

2. Court makes determination that the possession of firearm is non-issue

a. Determination requires judicial hearing at moving party’s expense
b. Dead-beat spouses don't get firearms back (option)

C. Violations/Punishment

1. Failure to file forms = contempt of court
2. Possession of firearm violation = misdemeanor + mandatory jail time
3. Subsequent offenses = felony

I don't know about the rest of you but I'm really tired at people automatically convinced that I'm some kind of homicidal maniac intent on overthrowing the Government simply because I own guns. The proposed legislation seems to require confiscation simply because you're involved in a divorce. I don't have the right to self defense because I'm getting divorced? I don't have rights, period, because I'm a gun owner? This is out of control.
"Determination requires judicial hearing at moving party’s expense" Who's the moving party in a divorce? How much does a judicial hearing cost? It appears to be in the signature gathering phase and they have 1,395 signatures online. Here's a link to the petition page. I'm not saying sign it, well you can sign it if you want, it's still a free country but that's not why I put it here.
