As reported by News Channel 13, a new law passed this weekend allows for the removal of guns from abusers in domestic violence cases.

In a time where gun violence and politics seem to constantly be in the media, I think it's only a matter of time before more of these laws get put in to place. I'm not saying I do or don't agree with them. I'm just saying that gun violence is so prevalent in the media, and people are so outspoken, that there has been a trend of recent announcements in New York from a halt on gun exhibitions to policies and laws, and I'm sure this won't be the last. That being said, no part of me advocates for domestic violence, and I do support safe changes that assist those in situations of violence. You never know what kind of change or action can save a life.
