Proposed Federal House Legislation HB3207

this is an anti-gun bill   evalutation

This bill is absent in the protection department and long on 'rhetoric' as it is rooted in anti-gun philosophy. Same bill as S.1539 (FOAC Bill No. SB1539)

This language expands the term of 'Domestic Violence' to dating and requires Zero Tolerance with gun bans.

Legislation Overview

Title: Zero Tolerance for Domestic Abusers Act

Subject: Assault and harassment offenses: Crime prevention: Crime victims: Domestic violence and child abuse: Firearms and explosives: Crime and law enforcement

Description: Zero Tolerance for Domestic Abusers Act This bill amends the federal criminal code to: state that the term "intimate partner" includes a dating partner and any other person subject to a protection order under state domestic or family violence law; and expand the term "misdemeanor crime of domestic violence" to include the use or attempted use of physical force, or the threatened use of a deadly weapon, by a current or former intimate partner. The bill makes it a crime to knowingly sell or dispose of a firearm to a person who has been convicted of a misdemeanor crime of stalking. It also makes it a crime for such convicted stalker to receive or possess a firearm.
