Joan Meier, a professor at George Washington University Law School, and Richard Epstein, a professor at NYU law school, discuss Monday’s Supreme Court decision in Voisine v. United States, which decided that people convicted of misdemeanor domestic violence should be barred from owning firearms. In a 6-2 decision, the court ruled that misdemeanor assault convictions for domestic abuse are sufficient grounds to invoke a federal ban on firearms possession in accordance with the Lautenberg Amendment to the Gun Control Act of 1968. They speak with Bloomberg Law host June Grasso on Bloomberg Radio’s "Bloomberg Law."
