Gun restrictions for domestic abuse suspects pass
ST. PAUL - A bill to take guns away from Minnesota domestic abuse suspects awaits Gov. Mark Dayton's signature.
The Senate passed the measure 60-4 Monday, the final step before the governor signs it into law.
Protect Minnesota Board President Joan Peterson applauded the vote. Peterson's sister was killed with a gun by her estranged husband. "If this had been law 25 years ago, my sister might be alive today," Peterson said.
