Supreme Court Keeps Guns Away From Those Guilty Of Domestic Violence

 

 

The Supreme Court on Wednesday strengthened a federal law that bars anyone convicted of domestic violence from possessing a gun.

  In a 9-0 decision, the high court said the ban extended to anyone who had pleaded guilty to at least a misdemeanor charge of domestic violence, even in cases in which there was no proof of violent acts or physical injury.

  The ruling overturns decisions in several regions, including the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in California, which had said the ban applied only to convictions that involved a “violent use of force.”

  At issue was a 1996 law in which Congress expanded an existing ban that applied to anyone convicted of a felony in a domestic violence case to include misdemeanor convictions.”

 

 

     Thanks to a 9-0 decision from the Nine Old Swine now our gun rights are basically at the mercy of your domestic partner’s whim . Choose your mate well my friends for even a bogus complaint of feeling threatened by you from your significant other can rob you of your right to self-defense … FOR LIFE .

In the case, U.S. vs. Castleman, the Supreme Court, in an opinion written by Obama liberal appointee Justice Sonia Sotomayor has decided that a misdemeanor conviction in a state court for “domestic violence” can be used under federal law to deny a person the Second Amendment right to own a firearm, even if the offense occurred years ago and the nature of the abuse involved in the “domestic violence” misdemeanor was minor in nature.

In other words, the Supreme Court opened the door so federal gun control law enforcement is free to investigate a person’s domestic relations past to deny gun rights if the person did something within the “family” a spouse, lover, or child considered objectionable, even if the incident occurred 20 years ago and did not involve allegations of physical force or violence.
