Report: Guns in Home to Blame as Domestic Violence Deaths Surge in Phoenix

Attorney Marc Victor Disagrees

“The link between firearms and domestic violence is strong,” Schell said. “We need to look at our laws if we are going to stem this violence in Arizona.”

The coalition supports universal background checks for all gun purchases, stricter protective orders, and a federal ruling that classifies dating relationships within domestic violence cases, Schell said.

Separately, the Phoenix review team suggests legislators should weigh the options of waiting periods for purchasing guns.

Chandler attorney and criminal law specialist Marc Victor doesn’t believe waiting periods will change anything.

“The issue isn’t the guns,” Victor said. “The gun doesn’t do anything. It sits on the table. It’s the disposition of the person using the gun. Bad guys can use knives; they can use their hands to bash their wives.”

Advocates of the Second Amendment argue it’s the person, not the weapon, responsible for gun violence. This leads to a chicken and the egg scenario. Would an abuser have killed their partner regardless of a gun being present or is it the presence of a gun that leads to fatalities?

Victor’s stance is there is no argument about whether guns kill people. People kill people.

“It’s the truth,” Victor said. “It’s like gravity. It’s a fact. It’s a paperweight until someone uses it.”

Victor, who is the only attorney authorized to speak at the Crossroads of the West Gun Show in Phoenix, said he believes gun violence is a symptom of a larger issue.

“Bad guys do bad things, but we need to face reality,” he said. “We can pass a law that says bad guys can’t do bad things but the nature of bad guys is that they don’t care.”

Instead, Victor suggests legislators should shift their focus to ending drug wars, strengthening capitalist business incentives and property rights, and lastly, prioritizing rehabilitation over punishment for those who are incarcerated.

5 stars just isnt enough for Andrew Marcantel, Marc Victor, and the entire staff here.When my... boyfriend was wrongly accused of a totally vile crime, neither of us had any experience navigating the "just-us" system.If you've faced potentially life-altering accusations, and you feel like the system is set up to empower police, prosecutors, judges, and pretty much everyone except you, then you're right! If you want to level the playing feild, Attorneys for Freedom will accomplish that.Some others have commented about the price. Good representation does cost money, unfortunately. What is a persons future worth?Compared to the competition, which is also expensive, the value you will get at this law firm is just unbelievable. Andrew especially is so great at walking you through possible scenerios, guiding you through important decisions, and has the experience to truly get good results. Extremely knowledgeable and creative not just "aggressive". He is also an excellent communicator, both in the office and in the court.Speaking of communication, the paralegal team at even some more expensive law firms will leave you wondering what it is they are paid to do. This is not the case at Attorneys for Freedom. Ashley Crispino and Kaylie Kline did an amazing job at both keeping us in the loop and being available when needed.Reading "Case Dismissed" after what felt like an eternity of fighting was the best outcome we could have ever asked for.I told my Aunt who was very worried about us at the height of all the absurdity that I felt like having Andy on our side was better than prayer. And I was right.read more

This is my first time ever needing an attorney and my attorney was Kate and she did an amazing job... with my case! Kate took time to go through all of the evidence so she understood everything before going to court. Kate assistant Madalyn was also super helpful and very sweet! Anytime I called she was very understanding and helped me walk through the process when I did not understand something and always had an upbeat positive attitude! If I ever need an attorney again I will definitely being going back to Kate!read more
