Arizona residents who have been victims of domestic violence in their relationships or marriages may be alarmed to learn that the National Rifle Association has launched a battle to prevent passage of federal legislation prohibiting convicted stalkers and batterers from buying firearms.
On May 25, Maricopa, Arizona, police alleged that one of their own officers committed a domestic assault against his wife and teen son. Police arrived at the couple's home around 4:00 a.m. after receiving a call. According to police, the defendant's 43-year-old wife told them that the defendant had caused her to fall by shoving her to the ground. She allegedly injured her wrist in the process.
