NY To Remove Firearms From Domestic Violence Offenders

Andrew Cuomo, the governor of New york, has announced that he will push for legislation that would prevent all domestic violence offenders in the state from possessing firearms.

Cuomo said he would make the provision his first priority in his State of the State address in 2018, according to Syracuse.com.

Currently, a loophole enables those convicted of some misdemeanors to keep their firearms. These include some assault crimes, battery and strangulation.

Cuomo’s proposal would order the removal of all firearms from anyone charged with a domestic violence felony or misdemeanor. In addition, it would require individuals to give up their guns if a judicial order of protection is issued or firearms license revoked, the New York Daily News reported.

“This year will be remembered as the year of reckoning, when both the tragedy of mass shootings and cultural and institutional harassment of women became impossible to ignore,” Cuomo stated, according to Syracuse.com.

  1. REMOVE THEM FROM MENTALLY UNSTABLE COPS AS WELL. ONE’S LIKE SLAGLER IN
    S.C. COME TO MIND. SHOOTING FOLK MORE THAN ONCE, SHOULD GET A COP DONE!

  2. There is a federal law in place that does this, no need for special law. But the feds, states, county, cities do not enforce it. BECAUSE 45% of all military, 35% of all law enforcement and 30% of all pro sports would not have access to firearms.
