Michigan governor vetoes attempt to allow DV offenders to have guns

Governor Rick Snyder-R of Michigan has vetoed a bill passed by the Michigan legislature that would have permitted gun possession by people subject to a domestic violence restraining order. Good for him to take a stand for victims:

“We simply can’t and won’t take the chance of exposing domestic abuse victims to additional violence or intimidation,” Snyder said. “There are certainly some reforms that can improve the way Michigan issues concealed pistol licenses and we support the rights of law-abiding firearm owners, but it’s crucial that we leave in place protections for people who already have endured challenges and abuse.”
