Creative Methods for Local Enforcement of Federal Firearms Restrictions

Event Date
Tuesday, September 12, 2017, 02:00PM

Even if your state does not prohibit firearms possession by Domestic Violence offenders, your community can still develop firearm surrender protocols. Federal law prohibits possession of firearms by Domestic Violence offenders because they are a specific group of individuals demonstrated to be untrustworthy with firearms. This webinar explores proven methods for removing firearms from Domestic Violence offenders, even absent specific state statutory authority. Many communities have already addressed the problem by reliance solely on federal authority for local action. Whether your community is considering implementing a firearm surrender protocol centered on law enforcement, the court, probation, or other format, this webinar gives concrete examples of how this can be accomplished.
