PostSubject: Domestic Violence: Firearms   Thu Mar 22, 2018 9:17 pm

Domestic violence is defined as a pattern of abusive behavior in any relationship thatís used by one person to gain or maintain control over another person, typically a spouse, intimate partner, child, other family member, or cohabitant. Domestic abusers often use physical force and weapons, such as knives and firearms, to gain control over their victims.

Both federal and state laws prohibit violent domestic offenders from owning or having contact with firearms, as firearms are often used to threaten, injure, and even kill the victims of domestic violence. Specifically, abused women are five times more likely to be killed by their abuser if the abuser owns a firearm, and domestic violence assaults involving a firearm are twelve times more likely to result in death than those involving other weapons or mere bodily force.
