Letter to Sheriffs:

Subject: Protect Victims, Not Abusers

Dear Sheriff, 

I’m writing to urge you to support and encourage the Legislature to pass SB 231 which would help protect victims of domestic violence. 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 and research shows abused women are 5 times more likely to be murdered by their abuser, if the abuser possesses a firearm. 

Our advocates at the Capitol have learned some Sheriffs may oppose this bill. We hope YOU are not one of them. Please protect the victims, not the abusers.

Sincerely,
First and Last name
