In South Carolina the House voted 81-23 to accept the Senate’s compromise version of the S. 3 bill May 28, 2015.
The bill largely changes the way criminal domestic violence offenders are punished in South Carolina. But perhaps the biggest change is a lifetime gun ban for offenders convicted of the worst offenses. Lesser offenses receive three-year or 10-year bans.
Folks Attorney General Alan Wilson applauded the General Assembly for its work on the bill. “While this problem won’t be overcome with legislation alone, South Carolina has taken its first giant in the long journey to changing the culture of violence,” Wilson said.
Thank you to the NFL for supporting the Movement to stop Domestic Violence.
