A Florida woman turned her abusive husband’s guns into the police. She was thrown into jail for armed burglary


The most dangerous person in a woman’s life is her significant other. In a study of female homicide victims between 2003 and 2014, the Centers for Disease Control found that 55% of female homicide victims were domestic violence. 

Of these murders, over half were carried out with a gun.

Even if domestic abusers never pull the trigger, they often use guns to threaten their partners.

Courtney Irby of Florida attempted to protect herself from her abusive husband by turning in his guns into the police, but instead, she was charged with burglary.
