Disarming the Batterer: Intimate Partner Violence and Firearms

Firearms are the most frequently used weapons in intimate partner homicide, eclipsing all other weapons combined. As prosecutors, it is our responsibility to make the most of the available tools at our disposal to disarm violent offenders and increase the safety of victims and our communities. This webinar discusses: the danger posed by firearms in the hands of batterers; firearms prohibitions for domestic violence offenders under federal or state law; recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions interpreting federal firearms prohibitions; the importance of firearms surrender protocols.

This webinar recording should qualify prosecutors for 1 hour of continuing legal education (CLE) credits. Prosecutors are encouraged to contact their state bar association in reference to application requirements and related fees.
