An obvious limitation to the 2nd Amendment

My interpretation of the abstract below: guy owns guns, somebody–maybe a relation, like a wife, of the guy–calls the police complaining of a “domestic incident,” i.e., violence. (I’m not over-interpreting there, am I? What else is a “domestic incident” that could rate a 911 call?)

Police arrive, confiscate guy’s guns. Guy is pissed, asks the court for an injunction barring the police from seizing the guns. Gotta assume this means, “Make those cops give me my guns back!” But the court says, nah, while your case proceeds, guy, the cops keep the guns.

At some time in our future, is it too much to hope that the law will prevent any man involved in a “domestic incident” ever to get his guns back? Ever?

Injunction Denied to Halt Gun-Seizing Policy by Police

Andrew Keshner, New York Law Journal   

A gun owner complaining about the Nassau County Police Department’s policy of confiscating firearms when responding to domestic incidents could not convince a judge to halt the practice while his case proceeded.
