The Supreme Court ruled in a decision announced Monday that a domestic violence assault committed “recklessly” qualifies as a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence, and therefore triggers the federal ban on gun ownership.
The case, Voisine v. United States, was brought by two men who lost their right to own or buy guns after being convicted of domestic violence misdemeanors in the state of Maine.

Freedom Fighters of America agrees with this decision but we need to be very careful of chipping away at the right to bear arms! We would also say that it's domestic violence or not. The word reckless is so very subjective and only adds another layer of muddy water on the Gun Control issue!
