To prevent the tragedy at Lafayette’s Grand Theater from happening here?
The governors of 2 states pointed out the suspected shooter should not have been able to buy the gun he used legally…after his involuntary mental health incarceration.
BUT, Kentucky is one of about six states, according to a CBS report, that also does NOT require the reporting of mental health patients to any type of gun data base. He could have bought the deadly gun here.
This needs to change. Ask your legislative representatives where they stand on making a change, and let’s have the 3—yes 3, so far-- candidates for governor tell us their views here.
Also, Kentucky does NOT require gun show sales to be subject to background checks..mental health, felonies and otherwise. This is not only a huge loophole, but..because gun shows are almost always run by out of town people…a definite slap in the face to gun stores owned by local people…and that should change, too.
That the shooter was using his Second Amendment rights is cold comfort to the families of the two young ladies who died.
America---Kentucky, something MUST change here.
I'm just sayin'...
