    In every community in America, there are programs that would help prevent school violence before it happens. Congress needs to immediately pass legislation, like the STOP School Violence Act, to give these programs the critical funding they need.- @ChrisCoxNRA #2A #NRA

    Summary by Sen. Hatch - https://www.hatch.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/2018/3/the-stop-school-violence-act

    The STOP School Violence Act is a bill to help schools and communities stop violence before it happens by providing resources focused on early intervention and school safety infrastructure.

    The STOP School Violence Act will fund four initiatives.

    1. First, it will provide grant funding for evidence-based training to prevent student violence against others and self, including training for local law enforcement officers, school personnel, and students. This is not just active shooter training but training designed to give students and teachers the ability to recognize and respond quickly to warning signs of school violence.
    1. Second, the bill will fund evidence-based technology and equipment to improve school security and prevent violent attacks. This includes the development and operation of anonymous reporting systems like the Safe Utah app, as well as improvements to school security infrastructure to deter and respond to threats of violence. And when prevention efforts fall short—as they unfortunately will in some cases—locks on classroom doors, reinforced entryways, and other commonsense security infrastructure improvements will help limit the violence.
    1. Third, the bill will provide funding for the development and operation of evidence-based school threat assessment and crisis intervention teams, which may include evidence-based training for school officials in responding to mental health crises. Again, school personnel need the tools to assess and respond to threats before they materialize, including those threats that originate from individuals struggling with mental health issues.
    1. Finally, the bill will provide funding for continued coordination with local law enforcement. Law enforcement alone cannot prevent school violence—just as no amount of prevention training, security infrastructure improvements, or mental health resources would be able to singularly prevent tragedies like that in Parkland. But law enforcement, and in particular, those officers who already staff schools, have an important role to play in any comprehensive solution to prevent school violence.

    Muh gumbmint solutions, when all you need to do is remove the shackles from liberty and allow free American adults to not be sitting ducks. It's that simple, and free, in more ways than one.

    Sen. Hatch's School Safety bill and Fix NICS bill are to be included in the current Omnibus spending bill that needs to be passed by Friday to keep the government open.

    Hearing from multiple congressional sources that Fix NICS and STOP School Violence are both currently in the omnibus bill. Nothing is certain until the bill is actually introduced, though.

    If we get "Fix NICS", but no honest National Reciprocity this term, then I WILL be voting Libertarian next time if I'm around to vote.

    If President Trump wants my vote the second time around he needs to get on the ball with fulfilling his promise to uphold our Second Amendment Rights.

    No more delays!

    We need to go back to the pre-Omnibus bill days when each major dept submitted their own proposed budget. Pork and BS was minimized and unrelated legislation stood or fell on its own merits.

    I keep getting emails about the Omnibus adding to the background check law and CDC gun studies. Trying to find what the House actually passed today.
