Research shows that removing guns from domestic abusers saves lives. But often, state laws regarding firearm removal in cases of domestic violence are difficult to navigate and in some states non-existent. This creates obstacles for victims and survivors to get the protection they need.
To address this problem, the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, the Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence, the Alliance for Gun Responsibility Foundation, and the Prosecutors Against Gun Violence have teamed up to launch a new initiative: Disarm Domestic Violence.
The Disarm Domestic Violence website, due to launch in October 2018, will allow advocates, gun violence prevention activists, survivors, victims, law enforcement officers, prosecutors, and so many others to research state-specific laws on domestic violence-related protective order firearm removals and take steps to remove guns from armed abusers.
