Cardin Response to SCOTUS Decision Upholding Gun Ownership Ban for Domestic Violence Offenders

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D-Md.), Chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, today released the following statement in response to the U.S. Supreme Court decision for U.S. v. Rahimi

“The Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the law banning domestic violence abusers from owning guns is a victory in the fight for gun safety and for survivors of domestic abuse. Keeping guns out of the hands of those with a record of violence saves lives. This is a step in the right direction, but there is more work we can and must do to implement commonsense gun safety policies and keep more families across the country safe.”
