It passed the House, and has now sailed through the Senate.

House Bill 1840 was passed unanimously, and was approved by a similar measure in the Senate Friday.

It will now go to Gov. Inslee for his signature.  The bill forces the subject of a domestic violence restraining order if that man or woman  is deemed by a judge to be a threat to the victim.

Such a ruling would come about after a hearing to examine the issue.  Senator Mike Padden says the bill complies with the 2nd. Amendment of the Constitution and stronger protections for having firearms in the state constitutions.
