South Florida Congressman Files School Shooting Bill


A South Florida Congresswoman is introducing a school shooting bill three years after the Parkland massacre. The goal is to provide a more accurate picture of school gun violence. Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz says the School Shooting Safety and Preparedness Act will create a legal school shooting definition to better track data. It would also instruct the Justice Department to provide detailed shooting reports with fatality statistics, shooter and victim demographics, shooter motivation and the types of firearms used. Finally, it would track prevention efforts by looking into school response plans So far this year, there have been 82 incidents of gunfire on school grounds, resulting in 21 deaths and 47 injuries nationally.
