Mel Gibson Won Big In Court

7/16/2010 5:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The judge in the Oksana Grigorieva/Mel Gibson custody war does not believe that Mel poses any danger to his daughter ... sources tell TMZ.

Sources connected with the case say Robyn Gibson's declaration was "powerful evidence" in yesterday's hearing. TMZ broke the story ... Robyn swore under oath Mel never physically abused her or their kids in the 28 years she was married to him ... and we're told it had an impact on Judge Scott Gordon.

Before becoming a judge, Gordon was a prosecutor in the L.A. County D.A.'s Office, specializing in domestic violence. The D.V. Unit has a mantra ... a man who commits domestic violence against one woman does it to everyone he's involved with. We're told Robyn's declaration resonated in the courtroom.

Sources say in the end, Judge Gordon felt Mel posed no danger to his daughter and allowed the status quo to stand.  So Gibson continues to have visitation rights with baby Lucia as well as one overnight a week.

There is a report out that Judge Gordon issued an order yesterday, requiring Gibson to surrender all firearms. That is not true. Last month, when the court issued a restraining order against Mel to stay away from Oksana, the judge followed standard procedure -- ordering the surrender of firearms. That automatically happens when the court issues a temporary domestic violence restraining order.  We're told Gibson's firearms were turned over immediately.

Women these days; especially young ones are drama queens and nutcases. I've been to Russia more than a few times and the women there are extremely strange at times;

This is going to get ugly and TMZ can't ask for anything better.

He doesn't have to turn them over to the cops TMZ he can pay to have them stored at a dealer or give them to fam or sell them.

Thats the LAW here in California. Hardly no one would give there gun to the cops. So report the whole TRUE story...

Thats he didn't turn them over to LA PD but he could have done other options.

Mel should not be left alone with that child. His raging anger has shown his inability to control himself.

I can tell TMZ is starting to kiss Mel's ass like they do with Dr. Conrad Murray. Mel's reps must be paying TMZ nicely as well as Mel paying his wife extra to spew a BS declaration.

Personally, I believe they are both at fault and I believe they bring out the worse in each other. They don't belong together and unfortunately, have a child together and now have to find a common ground for the sake of this child. They will do so one way or another. They really don't have a choice when it comes down to it.

I don't believe either will do jail time. I believe this will be a case of he said, she said and when it comes down to it, no one will do jail time because of this child needing BOTH parents to raise her. Oskana should get probation and community service for illegally taping Mel and visitation/child support deals will be reached and lives will go on. End of story. I don't see much more coming out of this. Do you?

GAWD you pple are idiots. when a man is abusive to the woman, it is completely different than being abusive to a child. just b/c he may have an anger issue and may have(not proven) hit this Oksana woman, doesn't mean he will harm the baby... People who jump to conclusions without proof usually jump to the wrong conclusions.
BTW, it is not proven Mel hit Oksana and if he did(a big IF) it seems it was just that one time...i realize once is enough but..

if he hit her more than once, i'm sure she would be putting that out there too...
