While I'm opposed to most gun control laws, this is one that I agree with, because the person being restricted from possessing a firearm has been thru due process. But there must be proof of the accusations. No one can be deprived of property without due process of law, as the Fifth Amendment to the US Constitution states.

And in addition, let us create a registry for stalkers and dating/domestic abusers, similar to the sex offender registry, as a way to keep victims and future people safe, because any person can be a victim of stalking and/or dating/domestic abuse.

I have been a victim of DV and I believe that we, as a country, must take all available steps to support women--all women, regardless of origins, ethnicity and citizenship--particularly against domestic violence, isolation and emotional and physical abuse.

The control and registration of gun ownership, the closing of registration loopholes such as that enjoyed by gun shows and private sales, and the restriction of the number and types of women's, magazines and anmunition must be part of this solution, but first, we must protect women and children as they attempt to flee domestic violence, the most dangerous point in abudive relationships.

i strongly feel that women is not an object . she is living being and has every right to share her concerns and be part of decision making, during war she is the first and easily available victim and she had to suffer a lot. Violence in any form should be stopped ITS INHUMAN!!!!
