How Judge Humphrey and the State of Indiana rationalizes stripping parents of guns

Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Loretta H. Rush claimed I was dangerous because I refused to give my ex-wife a .357 Magnum handgun per my divorce decree as ordered by Dearborn County Judge James D. Humphrey.  Chief Justice Rush cited this as a explanation why Judge Humphrey had a justifiable reason to fear me. Judge Humphrey ordered I give my ex-wife my .357 Magnum because she said, "I had asked for it was because I don't even want it near our children."  My ex testified she had no gun training. She testified I had other firearms. When asked why she was worried about the .357 Magnum and not the other firearms I owned, she replied, "This is something that could be easily handled by our children. I want it out of their reach." When asked what she was planning to do with the .357 Magnum she replied, "Getting rid of it." When asked if she thought a young child could shoot a .357 Magnum, my ex replied, "I don't know." She testified she was unaware my daughter had ever fired anything other than a BB gun. During cross-examination I asked my ex, "Have they ever received any kind of medical attention for anything the respondent has done, you know, the dangerous activities that you accuse respondent of engaging in with the children?"  What was the response of my ex-wife?  "No, they have not."

That's why Judge James D. Humphrey ordered me to hand over a firearm to a person who was not even aware of whether a five year old was capable of shooting the .357 Magnum handgun my ex testified she had never seen.  No evidence of abuse, injury or neglect. She did not even claim my possession of a .357 Magnum caused her to fear me. The fact I did not give the .357 Magnum to an irrational parent was used against me to obtain criminal indictments, a conviction in a criminal trial, and was later used by Chief Justice Loretta H. Rush and the Indiana Supreme Court to rationalize upholding the convictions. There are no Second Amendment Rights in Indiana in a divorce. If you try to exercise your First Amendment Rights and complain about the actions of Indiana judges, you will quickly lose those rights as well.  Feel free to check out the above excerpts in pages extracted from the transcripts from my divorce.
