“For the children…”
U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “U.S. Rep. Elissa Slotkin, D-Mich … announced plans to introduce legislation requiring secure firearm storage in homes with children,” Fox News reported. It’s a direct response to the Oxford school murders, following Rahm Emanuel’s “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste” political template.
“The Michigan congresswoman’s legislation, called the ‘Safe Guns, Safe Kids Act,’ would require gun owners to safely secure firearms in living situations in which children could access the weapons,” the report elaborates. “It would also impose a penalty of up to five years imprisonment if a child accesses a firearm and injures himself or others as a result.”
“The goal of the law is to keep children safe, and the congresswoman does not want Washington to politicize the legislation, she said,” the report continues. “Rather, she is looking for the endorsement of law enforcement and lawmakers on the right.”
