>>Domestic Violence and Firearms

(Minneapolis, MN) — Domestic violence organizations in Minnesota continue to express relief over a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that dealt with abusers having access to firearms. Connie Moore, who oversees Alexandra House, a service organization for survivors in the Twin Cities, notes from 1989 to 2018, guns were used in nearly half of cases around the state where adult women were killed by an intimate partner.  Moore says despite the law barring those subject to a domestic violence restraining order from owning guns, it’s still a challenge to ensure the gun’s removal. While Minnesota has a law covering the removal process, support groups say this is unevenly enforced.
