FOR 25 YEARS, THE VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN ACT HELPED LAW ENFORCEMENT FIGHT DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. DURING THE FUNDING RUNNING OUT DURING THAT GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN, JOHN KELLER SHOWS US THE EFFORTS TO RESTORE THE MONEY HAS TURNED INTO A BITTER, PARTISAN BATTLE. ALL WOMEN DESERVE TO LIVE FREE OF FEAR. THAT’S WHAT TODAY IS ALL ABOUT. Reporter: IN HIS 25 YEARS OF EXISTENCE, THE VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN ACT HAS AN RENEWED THREE TIMES, TYPICALLY WITH BROAD, BIPARTISAN SUPPORT. THE BILL TO BE VOTED ON TOMORROW, INCLUDES SOMETHING THAT DEMOCRATS HAVE LONG SOUGHT REMOVAL OF, THE SO-CALLED BOYFRIEND LOOPHOLE. THAT ALLOWS UNMARRIED MEN WITH VIOLENT RECORDS TO DO WHAT MARRIED MEN, NOT, PURCHASE A GUN. WHY WOULD YOU NOT CLOSE A SIMPLE LOOPHOLE? IS AS IF SOMEONE HAS BEEN CONVICTED, CONVICTED, NOT ACCUSED, CONVICTED! OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, OR STOCKING, THAT THEY NOT HAVE ACCESS TO A GUN. Reporter: THE NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION BEGS TO DIFFER. IN A KEY TEST OF THE CONGRESSIONAL CLOUDS, THEY ARE PUSHING REPUBLICANS TO KEEP THE BOYFRIEND LOOPHOLE. I’M A SURVIVOR OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. Reporter: WHAT THIS WOMAN RECALLS GOING TO COURT FOR PROTECTION FROM HER VIOLENT ACTS. IN THE CASE OF MY EX- HUSBAND, HE REALLY SHOULD’VE HAD HIS GUN RIGHTS TAKEN AWAY, BECAUSE HE WAS A THREAT. HOWEVER, HE DID NOT HAVE THE ABILITY OF DUE PROCESS TO DEFEND HIMSELF. THIS IS JUST WRONG. I FELL TO THE GROUND, AND LAID IN A POOL OF MY OWN BLOOD. THE SURVIVOR IS NOT BUYING IT. NOW, THE NRA WANTS TO OPPOSE THE VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN ACT REAUTHORIZATION ON THE GROUNDS THAT VIOLENT, ABUSIVE MEN STILL HAVE A RIGHT TO THEIR FIREARMS, ARE YOU KIDDING ME? REPUBLICANS WILL SAY THIS IS POLITICS, AND THIS IS JUST A TRAP. SURE, TO SOME EXTENT, THEY ARE RIGHT. I DO NOT QUESTION THE SINCERITY OF THE WOMEN WHO SPOKE AT THE PRESS CONFERENCE, IF THEY CAN

    The Natl Russia Rifle Assoc you are responsible for Nicholas Cruz shooting Stillman HS. Gov Scott took your bribe then made it legal for people who were on the Florida mental health registry to purchase weapons (anything for a sale) Two weeks later Cruz purchased his weapons and one week after that Cruz showed everyone why he was originally excluded from possessing weapons.

    The Natl Russia Rifle Assoc took $30 million from commie putin and Repug-Bull-KLANs took every penny
