There's a whole lot of stupid going on in that story...
If he broke the law and was incarcerated for running her off the road and she "broke into" his apartment and was incarcerated it sounds like they both got what they deserve and, unfortunately, the children pay the price and the taxpayers get to foot the bill.
Because our country has turned into a place where the ability to excite emotions or cause fear trumps even the cold eye of the legal system, I predict the State's Attorney will review her case, pronounce that she was acting in fear and to protect her children (never mind no mention was made that he has ever threatened or harmed the children) and they will drop the charges or reduce them to petty theft levels. Of course the husband will lose his guns forever and will likely find himself in jail for some amount of time. If he really was ramming her car with his car he needs to spend some time in jail, IMHO.
If he is not legally allowed to own the firearms he should not possess them. They should not be confiscated until the owner has had a set amount of time to sell them. If the State wants to take them, the owner should be compensated for them at fair market value. But let's not forget that what she did is wrong and it should not be excused just because she was trying to "protect" herself. If she was really in fear for her own safety, she should have talked to the police BEFORE she went into his apartment. If they were unwilling to help then she should have raised the issue with the media - it certainly would have been easy enough to pressure the police to visit his home and arrest him for illegal possession of a firearm. (I'm guessing that her complaint and knowledge of him possessing firearms would be enough probable cause for them to act ?) The minute she took the actions she did, she broke the law. Whether for "good reasons" or not, her actions were illegal and the police were right to arrest her.
The gun control crowd continually misses the mark in situations like this. They should be petitioning their legislators when loopholes are known - the removing of weapons from domestic abusers when convicted is a good example of this. The power of social media is undeniable and the pressure it can exert on our lawmakers has been demonstrated before.
Having gone through a divorce in Florida I can tell you the system there is HEAVILY skewed in favor of the mother and as a guy you are treated like a douche, even if there are no reasons for it. We had to get a judge to sign a court order to allow me to pay my ex directly instead of mailing a check to the State every two weeks, who kept $25 of it as a "administrative charge" and then mailed her a check. I understand there are people who don't pay their child support but to assume someone is in that category, before they ever demonstrate they are, is wrong. Another emotional "do good" notion that added days to the process, takes $25 from the children it is supposedly "helping" and still doesn't rectify the root problem.
The really sad part in all of this is these two idiots have reproduced - and their children are learning their morals and values from them.
