    Can Those Convicted of Domestic Violence Own Compound Bow's?

    What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Michigan

    I've read that the Supreme Court upheld the federal Lautenberg Amendment that bans convicted domestic violence abusers from possessing firearms? Does this include all weapons or just guns?

    Try giving the Michigan Coalition for Responsible Gun Owners a call : 517-484-2746

    They'll probably know more about it than most of us!

    Arttie, If you are going to post on another members thread, then please look up the applicable statute/case law for the state in question and post a link with your answer. The link should be to the states Government site and not the NRA.

    Thank you.
