LAPD, City Attorney Plan on Confiscating Guns From Domestic Violence Suspects

Rights abrogated without trial


A new way to deal with those accused of domestic violence was unveiled Wednesday, with the City Attorney's Office and Los Angeles Police Department seeking to remove guns from those accused of abuse.

"Once someone is arrested for domestic abuse, the LAPD will inform my office, and we will take steps to remove their guns," City Attorney Mike Feuer said at a City Hall news conference. "Each week in the United States, nine women are killed by handguns. We can do better than that."
