Letter: Protect women

Published: Tuesday, Aug. 12 2014 12:00 a.m. MDT

Congress and our U.S. Senators need to take action and protect women from gun domestic violence.

Current law doesn't go far enough to protect women. As the law stands, women who are in an abusive dating relationship, as well as victims of stalking, can't have law enforcement prevent their abusers from having guns.

The Senate just had its first hearing on the links between gun violence and domestic violence, but much more needs to be done. Congress needs to take action immediately to change the law to protect women from gun violence.
