The bill orders that guns be taken away from those convicted of domestic abuse and a judge may order them removed before a conviction. However, gun ownership does not change hands and there are ways the person can get his guns back.

A related bill also is headed to Dayton. It establishes a pilot project to use global positioning system tracking of some domestic offenders.
