It was determined in a report published by the Center for American Progress that between 2001 and 2012, 6,410 women were murdered by an intimate partner using a gun.  Sadly, violent crimes conducted by intimate partners and directed toward women is not unusual.  In these occurrences, over half of the assailants use guns.  Such unacceptably high numbers call for a solution.  The report proposes four policy changes that would better protect American women: prohibit all convicted abusers from accessing and purchasing firearms, send the records of convicted abusers to the National Instant Criminal Check, require a background check for all gun sales, and compel that all abusers surrender their guns once convicted.  In a country in which five women die daily from gun violence, publishers of the report argue that enacting these policies would save American women.
