It sounds like there needs to be another category or term for nonviolent domestic disruption. Domestic violence is a pretty ugly label to get slapped with if it isn't in fact violence. Even if you get to keep your guns for the moment being I can't see many employers looking too kindly upon such a mark on a person's record. People get turned away from jobs these days for far less than that.
