The Supreme Court upheld a federal law that bans anyone convicted of domestic violence from having a gun. In a unanimous 9-0 decision, the court said the ban extends to anyone who has pleaded guilty to at least a misdemeanor charge of domestic violence, and includes cases in which there was no proof of violence or physical injury. The ruling overturns decisions in several regions, including the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in California, which had said the ban applied only to convictions that involved a "violent use of force."
What’s Your Take? Should people guilty of domestic violence be forever banned from having a gun?
