NewJustIn: Major progress in gun control laws. Supreme court rules that people convicted of domestic violence cannot purchase a gun.
Just weeks after the horrific Orlando, Florida shooting killing forty nine people and seriously wounding 53 others, the Supreme Court makes a major decision to not allow those with domestic violence records to purchase a gun.
In Voisine vs. the United States, the Supreme Court wrestled with the question of whether or “recklessness” in a domestic violence conviction is enough to put a lifetime ban on a person’s right to buy guns; especially automatic weapons, six justices decided YES, indeed it is.
In a 6 to 2 ruling the Supreme Court is making history and progress toward saving countless lives by violent offenders who now cannot buy a gun or an automatic weapon that would potentially kill family members and/or other soft target shootings as occurred on June 12th at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida.
There are thousands and thousands of women and young girls who are in battered and violent relationships or marriages; where their mate, husband or boyfriend has harmed them and will even attempt to kill these women in a violent relationship. It is crucial that violent offenders should never be given the legal right to own a hand gun or automatic weapon. Through a 911 call for domestic violence, policemen are dispatched to the residence of domestic violence. The policemen should ask if there are any guns in the house and also run a check through on the abuser’s record. If there are guns the policemen should remove all the guns from the household and arrest and take the domestic abuser to jail. There should be a penalty for violating the Supreme Court law and the abuser should have to face numerous months even a year in jail.
Great Job Supreme Court A+
