BONUS: Gwen Moore on DV and Guns Ahead of SCOTUS Decision
Mar 29, 2024 Season 2 Episode 0
US Representative Gwen Moore

In October of 2023, U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore introduced a resolution in Congress to address the alarming correlation between firearm possession and deadly domestic violence incidents. The timing of Congresswoman Moore’s resolution was no coincidence. In early November, the U.S. Supreme Court heard a case that will likely decide if it’s legal to take away the guns of people who have been issued a restraining order related to domestic violence. In this bonus episode of “The Missing Peace,” Moore opens up about her own experience with domestic violence and we hear from a legal expert who weighs in on the implications of the high court’s coming decision.
