Last week, the nation watched in horror as six children and two adults were shot to death execution style and another 15-year old was critically wounded in the suburbs of Houston, Texas.Horrific. Terrible. One detail they missed which I mentioned the other day:
The accused shooter was an enraged ex-husband and serial abuser who had been arrested for assaulting his wife and who TWICE had temporary restraining orders filed against him. Still, our federal laws failed to protect these innocent victims.
Commonsense solutions to keep guns out of the hands of domestic abusers and other dangerous people are sitting on desks in Congress. This includes legislation to close dangerous loopholes in domestic violence laws and to expand Brady background checks to online and gun shows sales.
Haskell had been jailed in 2008 on charges of assault and domestic violence in Logan, Utah. Those charges were dismissed as part of a plea deal,So they want to expand and pass more laws when the current ones aren't being enforced? Trust in the gov't and laws to protect people? Several court cases stating that the authorities have NO obligation to enforce RO's OOP's etc.
'Commonsense' would be to NOT dismiss charges under plea bargains for violent people.
