WI man issued concealed weapon permit despite domestic violence charge

Countless studies show that domestic violence offenders who possess a firearm are likely to use it during a heated dispute. Federal law prohibits anyone who has been convicted of a misdemeanor domestic violence offense or who has a restraining order against them from possessing a gun. This law specifies that using any type of physical force against another person in a domestic relationship is an act of violence. In addition to the federal law, Wisconsin has its own state laws regarding domestic violence.

Although there are two sides to every story, domestic violence cases are perceived a little differently by law enforcement in Wisconsin. According to Wisconsin law, a person who is suspected of committing a violent act against a family member or domestic partner must be arrested on the scene. In many cases, it can be hard to determine exactly what happened during a domestic violence dispute, as many stories end up conflicting one another.
