gun violence

Oregon could lead the way in being first state to limit people involved in domestic violence from owning guns

It’s about time. Oregon is trying to pass a bill that prevents someone involved in domestic violence from owning a gun. What a great idea. Since the largest group that kill their spouces are men who are usually behind killing their wives.
SB 525 – Preventing Gun Violence in Domestic Violence Situations: This bill will protect families by bringing Oregon laws into alignment with federal laws prohibiting gun possession for perpetrators of domestic violence. SB 525 prohibits the possession of a firearm or ammunition by most people who are subject to a restraining order or who have been convicted of certain misdemeanor crimes involving domestic violence.

Since October is “Domestic Violence Awareness Month” this bill would prevent many deaths.
