Overturn the Lautenberg Amendment

Petition published by david goldsworthy on Dec 13, 2005
Target: us citizens

Petition Background (Preamble):

December 13, 2005

I am in the u.s. army. When i was stationed Hawaii, i ran in on my wife fooling around on me. I instantly went into shock and flipped out and to my deepest regret i kicked her. I was arrested shortly after this and was convicted with assault in the 3rd degree.

Well congress passed a law, known as the lautenberg amendment and now i am being kicked out of the military. This law is to prevent domestic violence but it is also hurting people who make a mistake in a certain situation they get in, and now i cant handle a firearm.

I believe that this Act should be overturned and believe it is affecting more innocent people than people who are true criminals.

Petition:

Please sign this petition, so that innocent people who make simple mistakes are not being punished for the rest of their lives. Overturn the Lautenberg Amendment.
