LACLEDE COUNTY, Mo. — The Missouri House and Senate are giving better protection to victims of domestic violence from their abusers.
According to Laclede County Sheriff David Milsap, the justice system needs to do a better job of working for victim’s crimes.
The bills will prevent the abuser with an active order of protection against them from owning or purchasing a firearm, including someone convicted of domestic violence.
Milsap says they respond to domestic violence calls regularly.
According to My Ozarks Online, those bills have not been assigned a hearing date as of today.
