Lautenberg Amendment

Document

The Lautenberg Amendment makes it a felony for anyone convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence such as an assault or attempted assault on a family member, to ship, transport, possess, or receive firearms or ammunition. The purpose of this Amendment is to get and keep firearms out of the hands of those individuals with domestic violence convictions. This form is to confirm if a U.S. Marshal applicant has not been convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence.
