Law aims to keep firearms from offenders
Placeholder Image
MONROE - A few loopholes in domestic abuse restraining orders have been cinched up to keep firearms away from alleged offenders. Assembly Bill 464, passed in April, clarifies language domestic violence laws, now ensuring that offenders are court ordered to give up weapons to their local sheriff; if they don't, they could be jailed. Wisconsin domestic abuse law requires an initial 72-hour period of no contact with the victim.
