First, this Act amends 1045, Title 10 relating domestic violence protective orders to clarify the procedures related to the disposition of firearms in the possession of a respondent. Second, this Act amends 1448(a)(6), Title 11 to provide that any person who is prohibited from purchasing, owning, possessing, or controlling a deadly weapon because the person is subject to a Family Court protection from abuse order is so prohibited immediately upon the entry of the protection from abuse order from purchasing or otherwise obtaining, and within 24 hours of personal service of the order, from owning, possessing, or controlling any deadly weapon. Third, this Act expands the definition of the term “misdemeanor crime of domestic violence” in 1448(a)(7), Title 11 to include substantive dating relationships and people who have cohabited at the time of the offense or within 5 years prior to the offense. Finally, this Act amends Chapter 39, Title 11 to require that the court indicate on the record of conviction of certain, specified offenses whether the offense was a “misdemeanor crime of domestic violence.” This Act takes effect on January 1, 2017.
