CWN Editor's Note: The chairman of the US bishops’ Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development has welcomed United States v. Rahimi, the recent 8-1 Supreme Court decision that upheld the constitutionality of a federal law that prohibits individuals under a domestic violence restraining order from possessing guns.

Archbishop Borys Gudziak, the Ukrainian Catholic archbishop of Philadelphia and chairman of the committee, said that “the common good demands that society protect vulnerable women and children from domestic violence.”

“Violence in any form is sinful, and the bishops have stated as clearly and strongly as we can that violence against women, inside or outside the home, is never justified,” he added.
