Hello, are you there?
Unfortunately, that is correct. Under California law in cases of a restraining order or a termporary restraining order, the restrained party has to turn in or sell any firearms in their possession.
The important thing to do is 1.) comply with the order in the short term, and 2.) go to court and fight the order so that it is dismissed. Then you will get your guns back.
I hope this helps.
I personally think its over the top, especially since many people use restraining order to hack at others, but that is the law right now.
Best of luck to you.
