Alert: Domestic Violence Legislation

We need your help to ensure passage of SB 231 – critically important domestic violence legislation on the Senate floor Monday (4/2/18). With just one click, let all members of the Louisiana Senate know that you urge them to protect victims of domestic violence.

Letter to legislators:
I’m writing to urge you to please support life saving legislation for domestic violence victims. SB 231 mandates that a person convicted of domestic abuse battery or under a protective order for family violence must transfer their firearm. National police statistics show that 50 women are shot to death every month by a former or current partner. 54 percent of mass shooting incidents involved the killing of a partner or family member according to Everytown for Gun Safety; and research shows abused women are 5 times more likely to murdered by their abuser, if the abuser owns a firearm. 
Ensuring an abuser no longer has possession of a firearm will save lives.
