New domestic violence gun law hits roadblock

Published On: Nov 14 2013 11:25:29 AM CST

People trying to comply with Colorado's new domestic violence gun law are finding it difficult to find places to turn in their guns.

The new Colorado law requires suspects and restrained parties in domestic violence cases to store their guns and ammunition with authorities or authorized dealers, but many agencies will not accept them because they don't have policies on how to deal with them.
According to the Montrose Daily Press, suspects who are cleared of the offenses can get their guns back.
The law says law enforcement agencies and others approved by lawmakers are not required to accept the guns and ammunition, even though violators face contempt of court charges.
