I’m working on a political science discussion question and need a sample draft to help me learn.
- With the pre-attack indicators mentioned in the YouTube video, at what point should local, state, or federal law enforcement have been notified?
- Federal Law 18 U.S.C. 922 (d) states “it is unlawful for any person to sell or otherwise dispose of any firearm or ammunition to any person knowing ….. that such person has been adjudicated as having a mental defect.” In many cases, this law is circumvented and background checks are not conducted when the sale and purchase of a firearm is between private citizens. Should Congress enact a law requiring the same restrictions on gun sales by private individuals to ensure public safety?
