Topic: Domestic Violence

Amy Klobuchar Cnn State Of The Union
Klobuchar: Children who witness domestic violence are twice as likely to commit domestic violence.
A 2010 study shows children who witnessed any intimate partner violence are 2.6 times as likely to perpetrate it themselves.  Children who witnessed any violence were 1.6 times as likely to become perpetrators.  We need new studies.
Domestic Violence
Psychologist David Adams says it is time to address excuses given by abusers like Ray Rice.
Adams, Co-Founder and Co-Director of Emerge, an abuser education program, says common excuses are: "Alcohol made me do it," "She provoked me," or "I lost control," or "I was under a lot of stress." Even victims may believe the excuse.  Society must be clear that there is no excuse for abuse.
Barack Obama
"Nearly one in five women in America has been a victim of rape or attempted rape."
The number comes from the 2011 National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey, which was released in September 2014 by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, showing that 19.3 percent of women reported experiences that are considered to be rape or attempted rape under the survey’s guidelines.
Florida Students for Concealed Carry
"According to the state of Florida, you are almost twice as likely to be attacked by an alligator than by someone who happens to carry a conceal-and-carry permit."
Politifact doesn't have data on attacks committed by people with conceal-and-carry permits. The gun data is based on an approximation using permit revocations that may or may not accurately reflect the number of "attacks." Also, the data is 10 years old. 
Nicholas Kristof-New York Times
Kristof wrote in the New York Times that "More Americans have died from guns in the United States since 1968 than on battlefields of all the wars in American history."
The number of gun deaths since 1968 — including, as Kristof was careful to note, both homicides and suicides — was higher than war fatalities by roughly 120,000 deaths, or almost four years’ worth of gun deaths in the United States.
Eric Bolling
Fox News’ The Five, Eric Bolling says "In countries where there are higher, more strict gun laws, there is more gun violence."
The data found by PolitiFact shows that among countries more like America economically, nations with stricter regulation have much lower rates of gun-related homicides.
