United States v. Randy Edward Hayes
18 U.S.C. section 922(g)(9), 18 U.S.C. section 921(a)(33)(A), Domestic Violence, Firearm Possession
Section 922(g)(9) of Title 18, United States Code, makes it a crime for any person convicted of a "misdemeanor crime of domestic violence" to possess a firearm. The question presented is whether, to qualify as a "misdemeanor crime of domestic violence" under 18 U.S.C. section 921(a)(33)(A), an offense must have as an element a domestic relationship between the offender and the victim.
