HF 3238, a bill to get guns away from domestic abusers, passed the Minnesota House Public Safety Finance and Policy Committee on March 25. Rep. Jim Newberger, (R-Becker), speaking in opposition to the bill, said that the 10 women murdered with guns by domestic abusers in 2013 was "not that many."
Sarah Grewing, attorney for the City of St. Paul, called the mixture of guns and domestic violence "toxic." "Firearms are an instrument of torture in domestic violence situations," she said.
HF 3238 passed the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, March 26.
