September 26, 2018
Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today released the following statement on House Bill 2060, which seeks to protect domestic violence victims from violence at the hands of their abusers:
“I want to congratulate the many domestic violence and gun safety advocates, who have worked year after year just to get a vote on this commonsense reform. Those advocates and the victims who have told their stories have my thanks for their fortitude and commitment to make our communities safer for victims and families. I have long championed this reform and will sign this bill when it reaches my desk.
“However, it is imperative that this not be the end of the legislature’s work to improve community safety and protect our citizens from gun violence. It is essential that Pennsylvania enact reforms to strengthen gun safety, including universal background checks and a mechanism to keep guns from other dangerous individuals.”
