I can’t believe it. It can’t be real.
A federal court (9th Circuit Court of Appeals) has ruled that if you get convicted of domestic violence, you are prohibited from owning a gun for the rest of your life…
Because of – get this – factual evidence that people who commit acts of domestic violence are highly likely to do it again, and if they have a gun, the victim is significantly more likely to be killed.
Even better, the ruling specifically applies to those convicted of misdemeanors, because while people convicted of felony domestic violence are already prohibited from owning guns, the Court acknowledged that domestic violence rarely results in a felony charge.
Factual evidence! Applied to gun legislation! In a way that puts the rights of domestic violence survivors above those of criminals!
Am I being punked?
