Gov. Wolf to sign executive order aimed at reducing gun violence

HARRISBURG, Pa. - Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf is taking a big step Friday to reduce gun violence in the state.

He plans to sign an executive order strengthening gun violence reduction efforts of certain agencies.

The signing was postponed a day due to the shooting of six Philadelphia police officers Wednesday night.

Wolf's plan will strengthen the efforts of executive branch agencies and programs through coordinating activities of existing boards, commissions, and departments.

The focus will be on improving public safety and health.

Wolf is scheduled to sign the order at 10 a.m. in Harrisburg.
