Lawmakers eye gun surrender for restraining order

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Washington state lawmakers want people to surrender their weapons when they are placed under a restraining order.

The Housed approved a plan Tuesday evening that would prohibit people from possessing a firearm while a protective order is in place.

Democratic Rep. Roger Goodman of Kirkland says the bill will help keep victims of gun violence safe.

The measure passed 61-37 and now goes to the state Senate.
