Guns Handed to Family Violence Offenders

Daniel Andrews needs to intervene immediately to prevent perpetrators of family violence being handed back their firearms.

Reports today that 87 convicted offenders had gun licenses handed back to them, many of whom are suspected to be family violence offenders, is completely unacceptable.

There is something very wrong with Victoria’s justice system if courts think handing guns to convicted family violence offenders is acceptable.

If Daniel Andrews is serious about tackling family violence, he will intervene today and fix this.
