I'm having a little trouble understanding the ending of this law;
"has, as an element, the use or attempted use of physical force, or the threatened use of a deadly weapon, committed by a current or former spouse, parent, or guardian of the victim, by a person with whom the victim shares a child in common, by a person who is cohabiting with or has cohabited with the victim as a spouse, parent, or guardian, or by a person similarly situated to a spouse, parent, or guardian of the victim."
I was convicted of Misdemeanor Domestic Violence against my father when I was 18, we were both intoxicated and we got into an arguement about my mother because he was degrading my mother and in the past has been very physically and verbally abusive towards her, and then we just kind of wrestled each other, and next thing you know I'm pleading guilty to DV not knowing the potential problems I would incur in the future. So from what I read in this law, please correct me if I'm wrong, but it does not say anything about a child being prohibited from owning and possessing firearms that committed "domestic violence" against his parent.
Thanks for the help!
I agree with your interpretation, but would be interested in hearing more. Have you been refused access to a firearm based on a broader interpretation? Charged with possession under a disability?
