December 13, 2019 – Gene Grant and The Line opinion panel examine a law that went into effect in July. The law lets judges order guns taken away from accused domestic violence offenders, but as KRQE-TV reports, it’s lightly used and has a big loophole. The panel debates the impetus behind the law and whether the loophole can be effectively closed or if the measure is fundamentally flawed.
