Bob Hagan, a Youngstown Democrat, would require those subject to domestic-violence protection orders to temporarily give up their weapons to law enforcement within 24 hours of being served.</p><p>The bill would also give defendants the option to sell their weapons to a licensed federal dealer instead of handing them over.</p> Thu, 16 May 2013 16:08:28 +0000 Associated Press 33273 at http://wyso.org
