Considering that the Lautenberg Amendment has been around since 1994 this isn't something new. It is a violation of federal law for a person to possess a firearm after being convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence.

There doesn't even have to be any kind of special finding. The only requirements are that the offense have as an element the use of or attempted use of physical force, or the threatened use of a deadly weapon and the victim is an "initmate partner."
