  • VICTIM ADVOCATES APPLAUD GOVERNOR’S VETO OF GUN BILLS PROPOSING DANGEROUS SOLUTIONS FOR VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

    Mon, April 10, 2017 - 11:34 by Action Alliance
    The Virginia Sexual & Domestic Violence Action Alliance, on behalf of domestic violence advocates across the Commonwealth, thanks Governor Terry McAuliffe for vetoing HB 1852 & HB 1853 (Del Gilbert) & SB 1299 & SB 1300 (Sen Vogel). These pieces of legislation would have further weakened the Commonwealth’s gun safety laws and put domestic violence victims at greater risk. The Action Alliance opposed the proposed bills because they perpetuated the dangerous fiction that guns in the hands of victims of domestic violence would prevent further violence. In fact, access to guns is the strongest risk factor for victims of domestic violence to be killed by an intimate partner.
