Empirical studies have established how dangerous it is to victims, families, and the community when domestic violence offenders possess or have access to firearms. This only highlights how important it is to balance the important constitutional right to bear arms with the right to live free of deadly violence. This training will lay the empirical foundation for disarming domestic violence offenders, and then discuss ways to appropriately respond to the presence of firearms, and present innovative ways to take away access to firearms while at the same time protecting Second Amendment rights.

Experience teaches us, and empirical research shows, that a batterer with access to firearms increases the risk of death for the victim, family, and responding officers. But properly responding to that risk involves a tangled web of federal and state statutes, court rules and procedures, and our duty to protect the constitutional rights of everyone. This webinar will help untangle and make sense of that web, and offer insight into what prosecutors can do to limit a batterer's access to firearms consistent with our duty to always do justice. The webinar will suggest practical solutions, back by data and practice wisdom gathered from years of experience.
