HARTFORD, Conn. – If he wins a second term, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy plans to advance a bill to remove firearms from recipients of temporary restraining orders. Malloy announced the bill during a West Hartford roundtable talk Wednesday.

Malloy is locked in a close re-election race against his 2010 Republican rival Tom Foley. Throughout the week he has been announcing proposals he will seek to pass if elected for a second term.

During a discussion on domestic violence at the West Hartford town offices, Malloy said he would seek to bar access to firearms from anyone who is the subject of a temporary restraining order.

Here’s an opportunity for the Governor to really address an important issue with a full court press.
