SCOTUS: Making the 'Prohibited Persons' pool wider and deeper with 9-0 vote
WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Wednesday (26 March) 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.
For those who believe SCOTUS is the proper, authorized, legitimate arbiter of what is, and what is not, Constitutional, I guess you will surrender your firearms if you've ever been convicted of domestic abuse. Further, when your wife or girlfriend, or ex-whatever, drops a dime accusing you of hurting her feel-bads and LEO writes it up as domestic abuse, you will dutifully surrender your firearms. Because, well, you know, SCOTUS said so.
