A proposal that would force those under a domestic violence order to prove that they have turned their guns over to a legitimate third-party will be voted on by the state Senate tomorrow.
Representative Garey Bies of Sister Bay says the bill is needed to close a loophole. Under current law, those under a restraining order are supposed to turn over their firearms, but there was no way to prove it had been done.
The bill that would change the way shootings involving police officers are investigated is now expected be taken up by the state senate in the last general floor period of the session on April 1.
Bies had been expecting the bill to go before the Senate tomorrow.
