Good morning. Just to be clear, the court order specifically said the gun was yours and he was not to remove it from the home?
Thank you for the additional information. Yes, if it is in your name, you certainly do not want it to fall into the wrong hands or have something done with it, that could fall back on you. As such, you first want to contact him and advise him of the situation. Simply share that the gun is to be returned and if not, you are calling the police. You can do that and report it, that he took it and it is in your name and not in the home, so it is documented. Then, you can contact the State where the gun was registered and report it to them as well. Moreover, if the court order did not allow him to remove items and he did, he could be in violation and you could hold him in contempt of court and take him back to court, in front of the Judge, to explain why he did this and the Judge can compel him to return the gun.

You would need to call the State where it was registered to confirm. If it is still under your name, it would be in the system, so that you could confirm this.
