Guns and Domestic Violence and The Supreme Court Ruling
Do we live by laws in our society today? As our Supreme Court rules on an
individuals rights regarding the privilege to hold and have or use a Gun,
when that individual has been found Guilty of a Domestic Violence Charge;
it seems the majority of citizens care more than our representatives and
those elected to office to protect us and enforce those laws. I speak from
the actual experience of one who has voiced an opinion in the highest of
places and the lowest of places. This opinion is in fact based on one individual
who does carry a concealed weapon. Today, walks among us in a crowd and
drives on our highways and goes in our movies and restaurants with the
casual knowledge he will not be stopped. Just what if, this individual gets
mad and has an attack of bad judgement, or lacks the ability to control himself
in one of these places we frequent with our love ones and friends. He decides
in a split second to pull that weapon and shoot to hurt, harm or kill anyone
who opposes his opinion. I stand up and say, I have and will continue to
contact and write about this and publish to all who could possibly be in
harms way of another of these individuals who have been charged, convicted,
sentenced and yet has the ability to obtain a gun. I speak not of a gun for
hunting as a recreation, but a gun because an individual has anti-social
behavior disorders which give them the ability to feel as a super power.
I have lived with such and I have seen such a person who feels its okay and
for whatever reason he is comfortable with, committing battery on a woman.
In most domestic/family violence episodes where guns are involved, they
tend to happen in a moment of passion or rage. Few people plan in advance
to shoot their wife, husband, boyfriend, or girlfriend or any other family
member. Instead these social crimes are of an instant nature.
Could the number of violent crimes against women/men be reduced significantly
if the laws were upheld? I do not intend to be silent with regard to this matter.
One simply has to visit a shelter for women and children escaping abuse, to
feel the fear they live with every moment. Fear this person is going to find
them, and kill them. These are serious times we live in. Our laws should be
serious laws and those elected or hired to enforce these laws should take
them serious. Look in the paper, turn on the television, and you will see
everyday, how many families are destroyed by someone who in the past
has previous history for domestic abuse. Guns are available to anyone
who wants its bad enough, I know. But if we made it just alertly harder to
legally obtain a gun, perhaps the numbers would change. Our laws dictate
processes which should in all cases be followed. In all states in this country
your background should be checked and rechecked. If you can not receive
a permit legally in Louisiana, you certainly should not be able to go to
Florida and get one. But in today’s society, this happens daily. I shall show
you Louisiana Court Documents, which prove, without a doubt a person,
has been charged, rightfully convicted, sentenced and common knowledge
that his probation was dependent upon him not having a gun and attending
mandatory Anger Management/Domestic Violence training. This individual
carries today Legally, in the state of Louisiana a gun everywhere he goes.
He has a concealed weapons permit legally, and a private investigators
license issued by the state of Louisiana. As I attempt to educate these
officials who have given him his permit and license to his true nature and
the possibilities which exist with his personality, no one cares.
With each and every turn, I am told, Its not our department; its not my
job to enforce the laws; its not my job to check to see if this person has
something in his background which makes illegal to carry a weapon; its not
this department that cares; I just give the permit; I just give the license;
its the State Police who issue and are responsible for finding and telling
me to issue the license. Contact them! Surprise, no one cares there either.
No one cares until someone gets killed. This is where it should begin.
Someone should care, if for no other reason, than my tax dollars go to pay
to insure that you care and do your job. We’ll just give another grant for
another shelter to be built in order to protect those individual families
from someone who looks upon this as a never ending problem and one
of which is overwhelming the police. As a mother of one of those policemen
who finds himself in harms way by going to the rescue of an individual
who has cried out for help from that split second motion, I am appalled
that my son or your son or your husband could be placed in such a
vulnerable position, he never knows if the other party, the attacking
party, has a gun. He does however know, if he has prior history of
violence or a conviction on his record. Could it save my sons life if
the laws were upheld by the states and the state men and above all by
those who we trust to do their job. I fear for myself, my son, my daughter,
your son, daughter, husband, any family member not just in our
policing industry but in our families. This is where it should end, but
The documents are of simple public record open to anyone and everyone.
I say nothing here that is not part of the opens records law.
I will pray for the next woman or child or police officer found in harms
way and pray that our government take serious action to deter these
guns from getting legally into wrong hands.
