Proposed legislation strengthening protection for women victimized by domestic violence moved through the Pennsylvania House of Representatives on Wednesday.
Among other changes, House Bill 2060 shortens the amount of time the subjects of protection from abuse orders have to turn over guns they own to law enforcement.
“We were absolutely thrilled. This is a bill that we have been fighting for for three years,” said Nicole Molinaro Karaczun, president and CEO of Women’s Center and Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh.
