domestic violence-related incidents.
- Annually, firearms were used in between 65% and 75% of all domestic violence-related deaths.
- A firearm in the household of a domestic violence abuser increases the risk of homicide to a domestic
violence victim by 500%
- Though 27 states (including Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina, Louisiana, and Texas) have state laws prohibiting convicted domestic abusers from having guns, Georgia does not.
