I remember that study
"of the femicide victims aged 18 to 50 years and 70% of the 307 total femicide cases were physically abused before their deaths by the same intimate partner who killed them"
"Thus, our first premise, that physical violence against the victim is the primary risk factor for intimate partner femicide, was upheld. "
"In comparing our femicide perpetrators with other abusive men, we found that unemployment was the most important demographic risk factor for acts of intimate partner femicide. In fact, abuser’s lack of employment was the only demographic risk factor that significantly predicted femicide risks"
As expected, these effects were due to gun-owning abusers’ much greater likelihood of using a gun in the worst incident of abuse, in some cases, the actual femicide.
(so in other words these guys were already criminals who shouldn't be in possession of a gun)
A victim’s access to a gun could plausibly reduce her risk of being killed, at least if she does not live with the abuser.
is a gun used illegally a very efficient tool, yes it is. Do they know predictive factors that can lead to femicide? Looks that way to me. How does an unemployed criminal purchase a gun legally? Guns are expensive, maybe not so much on the black market I don't know.
So how do you stop the "wife beaters" as you put it from getting a gun they can't have legally in the first place?
