Okay, my head is starting to hurt. I've done all the reading of your Code of Virginia, Title 18.2-308 that I can stand for now.

Basically, if you have any intention of returning or otherwise availing the firearms to your son within ten years of his conviction (in ANY State), you are guilty of 18.2-308.2:1, a Class 6 Felony.

As the unwilling participant in a felony, it would behoove you to immediately surrender the arms to your local P.D., contact the County D.A., or consult an Attorney. I found nothing as to the legality of your son "owning" while not "possessing" firearms, so I won't speculate as to the outcome of such a claim, if made by him.

Unless they are something special to you, it would probably be best to rid yourself of them in some way. Which way you choose would be where the educated/experienced opinion of the aforementioned parties will serve you best.

Sorry for your predicament, and I wish you the best of luck!

Its very simple, the son of fxdrider lives out of state and is a convicted felon. If the guns are transerred to the mother a convicted felon will probably have access to them. Fxdrider has the sales receipts for both guns.

An order to release the guns to the mother must come from a judge in the state where fxdrider lives: That means the mother would have to come to fxdrider's state and hire a lawyer and for a hearing or trial. All that stuff costs big bucks: Unless the guns are extraordinarily valuable or the mother has money to burn the chance of a lawsuit is nil.

fxdrider, don't give up those guns. Good luck to you.

I agree with thallub; do Not relinquish these weapons to anyone besides family

Sounds to me like a lawsuit may be brewing

Chances are, they won't do anything about it.

I agree 100% skysoldier (above quote is the last line of your post)

If the order comes from a judge to surrender them, your conscience should be clear. Let him worry about giving a felon access to guns come reelection time. Short of that, I'd just go ahead and hang on to them.

That pretty much sums it up. Any more commentary is just running in circles.
