Supreme Court Rules to Uphold Gun Restrictions for Domestic Violence Abusers Under Protective Orders.

Plano, Texas – Texas Muslim Women’s Foundation (TMWF) is elated to see justice
preserved in today’s nearly unanimous 8-1 Supreme Court Ruling upholding
federal law on restricting gun ownership to Domestic Violence abusers under
protective order.

Since 2023, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals struck down federal law in
favor of protecting gun owner’s rights in Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi.
According to the Texas Council on Family Violence, when a gun is in the home,
the risk of death increases by 500% in domestic violence abuse incidents.
TMWF CEO Mona Kafeel states, “TMWF advocates for domestic violence
prevention, and survivor intervention services through our Peace in the Home
program and our 24/7 Crisis Hotline. We work closely with the District Attorney in
Collin County to provide a collaborative community response for survivors of
domestic violence. This Supreme Court ruling marks a significant victory for
protecting vulnerable individuals and strengthens our ability to do so.”
