Domestic Assault Loss of Gun Rights (Lautenberg Amendment)
Many people don't know that conviction for a crime of domestic assault can take your gun rights away for life. Congress in 1996 passed the Domestic Violence Offender Gun Ban ("Gun Ban for Individuals Convicted of a Misdemeanor Crime of Domestic Violence", 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(9)). What this does is make any crime of domestic assault or any crime that involves a family member and the use of force a disqualifying offense. That commonly includes Domestic Assault and some cases of Disorderly Conduct. There are many inexperienced attorneys that don't understand the law and inadvertantly advise cleints to take plea deals that result in the loss of rights.
