Domestic Abusers Will Lose Second Amendment Rights

Recently, the governor of Connecticut made the move to take a much larger step in the name of gun control.

In fact, Gov. Dan Malloy (D) intends to sign a bill to take guns away from suspected domestic abusers, after it passed both houses of the state Legislature this week.

He says the bill is a "commonsense step towards strengthening and enhancing our gun violence protection laws."

What happens if a "suspected domestic abuser" is wrongly accused? According to the bill, suspects would have 24 hours after being served a temporary restraining order to surrender or sell all firearms in their possession.
