Mississippi GOP Lawmaker Kills Domestic Violence Bill In Case Abusers Have A “Change of heart”

The Republican chair of the Mississippi House Judiciary B Committee this week killed a bill that would have made domestic violence grounds for divorce.
According to Mississippi Today, Republican Chairman Andy Gipson said that he would not take up Senate Bill 2703 before a Tuesday deadline, effectively allowing the bill to die.
“At a time I think we need to be adopting policies that promote marriage and people sticking together, I have some serious concerns about opening the floodgates any more than they already are,” the lawmaker explained. “I think the floodgates are already open and this just tears the dam down.”
“We need to have policies that strengthen marriage,” Gipson added. “If a person is abusive, they need to have a change in behavior and change of heart.”

It sounds to me like we’re about to get a Mississippi newspaper headline that says:
”Mississippi GOP Lawmaker Charged In Spousal Abuse Case”

NOTE to Mr. Gipson:
Abusers don’t have a change of heart asshole. The only thing that changes is that the abuse will get worse and worse until their victim is dead or fights back and ends up in prison for doing so.
In Mississippi current law allows divorced to be granted for impotency, adultery, desertion, drunkenness, opium addiction, mental illness and “pregnancy of the wife by another person.
So, if you can’t get it up, your wife can leave, but if you go full asshole on her and beat the shit out of her, she has to stick around. Yeah, sounds like a good plan …
I’m thinking somebody should probably check on your wife ASAP.

I’ll just leave this here then …
