Wisconsin txoj cai lij choj txwv tsis pub cov neeg teb rau hauv tsab ntawv tiv thaiv kev tsim txom hauv tsev los ntawm kev muaj thiab yuav phom. Thaum lub tsev hais plaub txiav txim siab tias daim ntawv tiv thaiv ua tau raws li tus qauv no, cov neeg teb yuav tsum sau tag nrho cov riam phom uas lawv nkag tau. (Qhov no tsis siv rau Budworth, uas tau ntsib kev tsis sib cuag tab sis tsis yog tsab ntawv tiv thaiv kev ua phem hauv tsev.)

Tom qab ntawd lub tsev hais plaub txiav txim tias cov riam phom yuav tsum tau tso tseg nrog hnub, sijhawm thiab qhov chaw. Hauv Wisconsin, lub nroog tub ceev xwm lub chaw ua haujlwm feem ntau yuav muaj lawv. 

"Txoj kev no xav kom tus neeg teb hais tias yog tus neeg uas muaj lub nra ntawm kev qhia tias lawv ua raws," Keck, uas tau tsim cov txheej txheem tso cai siv hauv Wisconsin cov lus txib tiv thaiv kev ua phem hauv tsev. 

Thaum kawg, lub tsev hais plaub yuav tuav lub rooj sib hais los saib seb tus neeg raug foob puas tau ua raws li qhov kev txiav txim - feem ntau tom qab ob lub lis piam dhau los. 

Ryan Poe-Gavlinski, tus thawj coj ntawm Restraining Order and Survivor Advocacy Clinic (ROSA) tau hais tias "Kuv xav tias yuav tsum tau ua raws li ntawd, thiab qhov kev soj ntsuam yuav tsum tau nrawm dua," said Ryan Poe-Gavlinski, tus thawj coj ntawm Restraining Order and Survivor Advocacy Clinic (ROSA) ntawm University of Wisconsin Law School. "Nyob rau hauv kev txwv txiav txim, lawv ua cov riam phom tso tawm ob lub lis piam, tab sis vim li cas peb tsis ua lawv li ntawm 48 teev?" 

Lub kaw lus, txawm li cas los xij, feem ntau vam khom rau cov neeg teb qhov kev ncaj ncees txog lawv cov riam phom nkag - tsis yog qhov lav, cov kws tshaj lij hais.

Hauv qee lub xeev, xws li Colorado, cov kws lij choj tuaj yeem txav mus rau qhov kev tiv thaiv kev ua txhaum cai ntawm lub rooj sib hais plaub rau kev ua phem hauv tsev, uas pib foob pob hluav taws raws li kev txiav txim los ntawm tus neeg raug tsim txom. Wisconsin tsis muaj kev xaiv li ntawd, raws li Keck. 

Thiab txawm hais tias Budworth raug txwv tsis pub muaj riam phom raws li kev tso cai ntawm kev tso cai, tsis muaj cov txheej txheem tso cai kom cov neeg raug foob ua raws. Cov neeg raug foob tuaj yeem yeem npaj muab lawv cov riam phom tso rau hauv tub ceev xwm lub chaw ua haujlwm lossis lwm tus neeg sab nrauv.  

Thaum nws raug tua los ntawm nws tus hluas nraug thaum xyoo 2020, Jesi Ewers tau tso tseg tsib tus menyuam. "Nws nyiam nyeem thiab kawm txhua yam txog kev ntseeg, kev xav, thiab lub neej," nws tus ntxhais Sati Ewers-Kubly nco qab. “Nws yog tus muab, nws xav kom txhua tus muaj kev zoo siab.

Lub Regional Domestic Firearms Enforcement Unit (RDFEU) yog ib pab tub ceev xwm ntau yam ntawm cov tub ceev xwm, cov neeg tawm tswv yim thiab cov kws lij choj hauv King County, Washington. Tsim los ntawm 2018, nws pab ua raws li lub xeev txoj cai lij choj uas xav kom cov neeg teb ntawm qee qhov kev tiv thaiv kev txiav txim kom tso lawv cov riam phom. 

Lub koom haum ua haujlwm feem ntau ntawm kev tiv thaiv kev tsim txom hauv vaj hauv tsev tab sis nws kuj tseem pab rau cov xwm txheej uas txwv tsis pub muaj riam phom. 

Shanahan tau hais tias "Peb tau ua ntau dua 1,000 qhov xwm txheej txhua xyoo ib leeg tsuas yog ntawm kev tiv thaiv pej xeem thiab kev tshuaj xyuas ua raws," Shanahan, uas nws cov neeg ua haujlwm tau qhia rau cov kws lij choj thiab tub ceev xwm los ntawm cov cheeb tsam thoob plaws lub tebchaws txog kev foob phom. 

Lawv txoj haujlwm pib thaum lub tsev hais plaub txwv tsis pub tus neeg teb xov tooj ntawm kev tiv thaiv pej xeem los ntawm kev muaj riam phom.

Daim duab kuj suav nrog cov lus nug txog kev tsim txom thiab seb phom puas muaj feem cuam tshuam. Cov ntaub ntawv no yog qhov tseem ceeb rau kev npaj kev nyab xeeb ntawm tus neeg foob thiab tub ceev xwm, thiab pab tub ceev xwm kom ntseeg tau tias tag nrho cov phom nyob hauv tus neeg raug foob tau raug muab tso tseg.
