Supreme Court upholds gun control law to protect domestic violence victims

22/6/2024 7:31
        The Supreme Court on Friday upheld a federal gun control law that is intended to protect victims of domestic violence.
        
        In their first Second Amendment case since they expanded gun rights in 2022, the justices ruled 8-1 in favor of a 1994 ban on firearms for people under restraining orders to stay away from their spouses or partners. The justices reversed a ruling from the federal appeals court in New Orleans that had struck down the law.
        
        Chief Justice John Roberts, writing for the court, said the law uses "common sense" and applies only "after a judge determines that an individual poses a credible threat" of physical violence.
        
        Justice Clarence Thomas, the author of the major 2022 Bruen ruling in a New York case, dissented.
