My husband and I unwittingly are in possession of a friend's

Hello,JA: Hello. What seems to be the problem?Customer: My husband and I unwittingly are in possession of a friend's gun for 4 weeks now, that he "loaned" to us due to the 3 robberies recently in our country club. This past Friday, this friend was arrested with a domestic violence charge by his girlfriend. She testified, he threatened to shoot her with a gun. He told the police and is now documented that he was not in possession of a gun because we've had it for 4 weeks. He gave them our name and contact information. Here is our dilemmaJA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: We didn't think much of it but he now wants his gun back. The question is 1) if we return his "private Property and God forbid assaults his girlfriend, are we accountable for returning his gun back to him knowing, he was arrested, probably shouldn't have a firearm and we could held responsible and liable civilly and criminally? We are 2 seniors. We live in Palm Beach county Florida.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Yes, he said he was arrested and his girlfriend texted me that there is a "stay away" order on himJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: that's about it.....We obviously want to do the right thing and not get involved in this domestic dispute that involves a weapon.
