things company not do including having firearms. a few hours later at 6:00 p.m. he surrendered seven guns to the prince george's sheriff's department. according to the montgomery county state's attorney tordil may have held on to the gun used in his shooting spree. here's how that could have happened. the stay away hearing was a civil order held in family court not criminal court. the judge required guns be surrendered and tordil appeared cooperate. so the judge never issue ad search warrant or back ground check into how many guns he actually owned. although this was a civil dispute, i'm told by the prince george's county sheriff's office that the judge could have said we want to do a search warrant or we want to check the background of how many guns this man owns if he felt there was reason in this case to do so. evidently that have not the case here. tordil did not have a criminal background before this shooting
