Thank you to everyone who submitted comments. Look for the final version of the report to be released on Thursday, April 12.
It's been quite a week in Boston, and with all the recent shootings, many have asked about the work of the Public Safety & Homeland Security Committee--particularly in light of our hearing on youth gun violence last November. Earlier this week, I described some of the ideas we have been thinking about, and today I am posting the report I have written, with staff, including all recommended legislative actions. I am also attaching a re-drafted version of a gun trafficking bill I have filed with Senator Montigny, Representative Canessa and Representative St. Fleur.
This is my current "best" thinking on the subject and I am sure that there is still much more to be done at the federal level, and local level. But if you have ideas for state action, please give feedback which--if it seems consistent with these objectives-- I may be able to include in the final report. I will be accepting comments until the end of the day Monday, April 9.
