VIDEO: Bill to limit who firearms can be handed over to passes House Judiciary

On Tuesday morning the House Judiciary Committee met to consider a handful of firearm bills. 

The committee started off the meeting with Rep. Marguerite Quinn's (R-Bucks) House Bill 2060, which would require an individual who is found guilty and sentenced before a judge to hand over their firearms to a law enforcement officer or a licensed dealer. This bill would also shorten the amount of time that firearms must be forfeited from the current deadline of 60 days to 48 hours for an individual convicted of the misdemeanor crime of domestic violence. 

Rep. Quinn spoke with The PLS Reporter after the meeting.

On Monday afternoon Rep. Sheryl Delozier (R-Cumberland) hosted a press conference in support of House Bill 1419.

The bill, which was passed by the House in April, builds upon Act 5 of 2016 and would automatically seal low-level, non-violent misdemeanors, summary offenses and non-conviction records with no action required by the person after remaining crime-free for 10 years. The bill was unanimously passed out of the Senate Judiciary Committee Monday afternoon and now will head to the Senate Floor.
