US gun ban doesn't apply to city domestic abuse laws

US gun ban doesn't apply to city domestic abuse laws
- The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals' ruling came in the case of Alexander Pauler, a Wichita man who was accused of violating a federal law that prohibits someone from owning a gun if they've been convicted of misdemeanor domestic violence "under federal, state or tribal law."
Prosecutors said Pauler couldn't have a gun because he had been convicted of misdemeanor domestic violence under a Wichita ordinance. But a three-judge panel of the Denver-based appeals court on Tuesday unanimously found that the federal gun law doesn't apply when the underlying domestic abuse violation is under a municipal ordinance.
