Senator Anthony H. WilliamsThe Pennsylvania State Senate voted overwhelmingly in favor of this important bill last week. HB 2060 requires the following:

  • People convicted of misdemeanor crimes of domestic violence or subject to final restraining orders must surrender their guns within 24 hours. The court can do so in other cases if it finds it warranted.
  • It eliminates the ability of that abuser to turn their guns over to family or friends.

This bill is an important step in reducing gun violence in Pennsylvania and provides protection to victims of domestic violence.

I was proud to cast my vote and applaud all state legislators who joined together to pass this common sense legislation.

Community Partner Spotlight

Senator Anthony H. WilliamsIt was my distinct honor to be recognized by Bartram’s Garden last Thursday at their annual Twilight in the Garden Gala.

Bartram’s Garden is Philadelphia’s hidden gem! Its continued development demonstrates what can be achieved throughout all of Philadelphia regardless of zip code.

Bartram’s Garden also highlights the importance of green spaces in urban settings. Too often, we are told that every inch of urban space must be used for housing or business. Bartram’s Garden shows us what is achievable when passionate owners and operators dedicate themselves to the revival of natural beauty in one of America’s biggest cities. This beautiful green space provides all Philadelphians with a wonderful opportunity to explore nature and learn a portion of Philadelphia’s rich history.
