High Court Hears Gun Rights for Batterers Case

Allison Stevens writes for Women’s eNews, “The Supreme Court heard a case Monday that could decide the actual scope of a gun ban for batterers that — despite being a federal law — has never been applied to all 50 states. If the justices side with the U.S. government’s challenge — which argues the law should not be restricted to just a portion of the states — batterers in every state and territory would be subject to the gun control ban.”
