It’s been introduced by Senator Brad Ashford:
Senator Brad Ashford of Omaha says his proposed bill would have caused 19-year-old Robert Hawkins to be reported before the rampage. Others disagree.
The bill would require gun dealers to include trigger locks on every sale, mandate that stolen guns be reported within 48 hours and trace how youths get firearms.
Because parents who are careless enough to allow their firearm to fall into the hands of their mentally disturbed, convicted felon son are, of course, going to dutifully report it to the police as the law says.
This law wouldn’t have prevented anything, except give the police something to charge the father with.
