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.
