NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A proposal that would create a procedure for individuals subject to an order of protection for domestic violence to turn over their weapons is headed to the governor for his consideration.

The measure was sent to Gov. Phil Bredesen on Tuesday after the Senate agreed to a technical change made by the House.

Under current law, there is no procedure for respondents to relinquish their weapons while the order is in effect.

This bill would establish a procedure that includes giving them 48 hours to hand the weapons over to anyone not prohibited from possessing firearms.

Bredesen spokeswoman Lydia Lenker says the governor will review the legislation once it reaches his desk.
