We sat down immediately. Within, like, three days, Chuck, we sat down with law enforcement, mental-health counselors, and educators and said, “What would really work?” And so we passed historic legislation within three weeks. One is a “red flag” law, that says that if you have threatened harm to yourself or somebody else, then through law enforcement and through due process, through the court system all your weapons can be taken away. And then on top of that we said every school in our state’s going to have law enforcement, and we’re going to have more mental-health counselors, and we’re going to set up a process where we can really evaluate problems before they happen.
