Bill: A1217 Introduced: January 1, 2018 Status: Signed into law on June 13, 2018
The bill passed the both chambers in early June with bipartisan support, and was signed by Democratic Governor Philip Murphy within a week. Murphy also signed A1181, a separate measure that requires law enforcement to confiscate a person’s guns if a mental health professional has determined the person may harm themselves or others.
Trump trick the Dem’s into passing the bill, he has full control of the spending of the money in the bill, after its is passed. He can change the amounts and where the money goes, just like Obama did with his Omnibus bills for 8 years. Trump can use DOD money to build the wall.
Trump is play chess while the Dem’s are playing checkers.
While many politicians focus on the gun debate when discussing the issue of mass shootings, what virtually none of them ever mention is the clearly established link between such mass homicides and psychiatric drugs. The mental health watchdog organization,CCHR International, recently reported that at least 36 school shootings or other school-related acts of violence were committed by people who were either on psychiatric drugs or withdrawing from them – which can be just as dangerous.
Three students at a Maryland high school are in critical condition Tuesday morning after one male student brought a handgun to school and shot a female student while striking another male student.
Some will argue that this was another “gun-free zone,” but it wasn’t, actually; there was an armed SRO in the school and the officer apparently reacted quickly and appropriately to the situation. The SRO at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., by comparison, turned the school into a gun-free zone when he failed to respond to alleged shooter Nikolas Cruz.
In other news… U.S. President Donald Trump has called for healing and peace in the United States… following Wednesday’s mass shooting at a high school in Florida. During remarks at the White House on Thursday, President Trump expressed his grief over the tragedy, highlighting that he would meet with relevant authorities to deal with the issue of mental health. Trump, however, did not mention guns or gun control during his prepared statement. “Our administration is working closely with local authorities to investigate the shooting and learn everything we can. We are committed to working with state and local leaders to help secure our schools and tackle the difficult issue of mental health.” President Trump said he’s making plans to travel to Florida to meet the victims and local officials. Seventeen people were killed and 14 other injured — three seriously — in Wednesday’s attack. The 19-year-old shooter has been charged with premeditated murder.
