Domestic Abusers Now Required To Prove Guns Have Been Given To Responsible 3rd Party

 

Domestic abusers will now need to prove they have turned over any firearms to a responsible third party under a law signed yesterday by Governor Scott Walker.

State Representative Garey Bies of Sister Bay authored the bill which essentially fixes a loophole in the state’s domestic abuse law that did not require proof the guns were surrendered.

Bies says it was being done in some jurisdictions, but not others.

Bies says the law attempts to find a balance between protecting victims of abuse and preserving the Second Amendment rights of those charged.
