SANDY HOOK VICTIM'S UNCLE OFFERS PROPOSAL TO PREVENT MASS SHOOTINGS
#1
Quote:The uncle of one of the children killed at Sandy Hook Elementary has proposed new legislation designed to reduce future mass shootings without resorting to gun bans.

Lawyer Alexis Haller is the uncle of Noah Pozner, who was killed by Adam Lanza in Newtown, CT last month. Haller recently flew from his home in Seattle to Washington, D.C. to make his case for a series of plans designed to prevent future mass shootings.

Unlike other proposals currently on the table, Haller is not seeking to ban anything. His idea covers everything from before a shooting happens to the grief counseling needed after the fact.

At the core of Haller's proposal are two new laws. First, he recommends a mandatory reporting law which would require anyone with knowledge of an impending crime involving guns or bombs to notify authorities within 24 hours.
In his written justification for the proposal, Haller notes that mass shootings are rarely spontaneous events.

They often involve premeditated planning; according to the government report issued after Columbine, "Most attackers engaged in some behavior prior to the incident that caused others concern or indicated a need for help."

His other recommendation is a "Firearm Safekeeping Law" which would make it a misdemeanor, or possibly a felony, to store guns in such a way that they could fall into the hands of someone with a mental illness.

The proposed law is written so that it only applies in a case where a mentally ill or violent person actually does obtain the weapon, not where they merely could have.

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

I actually like the first part, but the second should be common sense.

Also, neither would be easy to enforce.

Slippery slope to mandatory safes, locks, ammo kept separate...



It's a noble gesture, but it's not really much more than someone saying "There oughtta be a law against (fill in the blank)."

I reported my stalker to homeland security as a potential mass shooter because i knew she was armed, she's a foreign national, and she's a total loon.

So under this new law....what would they do when you informed them?

I'm guessing the same thing as now. Nothing.

Exactly, except with the new law they'll charge YOU for doing the NOTHING they are doing now.
