GOV. GREG ABBOTT ISSUES EIGHT EXECUTIVE ORDERS AIMED AT STOPPING POTENTIAL MASS SHOOTERS

SOURCE: TEXASTRIBUNE.ORG
Gov. Greg Abbott issued eight executive orders Thursday in response to last month’s mass shootings in El Paso and Odessa.

“Texas must achieve several objectives to better protect our communities and our residents from mass shootings,” Abbott said in a statement. “I will continue to work expeditiously with the legislature on laws to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous criminals, while safeguarding the 2nd Amendment rights of law-abiding Texans.”

The orders focus largely on strengthening law enforcement’s ability to respond to and prevent future shootings, mainly through improving reporting channels and closing "information gaps" when members of the public or law enforcement agencies worry that a person might be a threat to commit violence. But, Abbott's office added in a news release, "legislative solutions are still needed."

The governor also plans to release a report of recommendations next week from meetings of the Texas Safety Commission, which Abbott formed after the El Paso shooting.

The actions by Abbott come as state lawmakers grapple with how to respond to last month’s tragedies in El Paso, Odessa and Midland. At the beginning of August, a gunman targeting Hispanics in an El Paso Walmart fatally shot 22 people and left more than two dozen injured. Then, over Labor Day weekend, a gunman killed seven people and injured 22 others during a shooting spree in Odessa and Midland.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Governor Abbott, a word, please; it appears that you feel compelled to "do something" about horrendous mass shootings in your state.

One of the logical things you could do, is to see if any people doing these kinds of acts, are on any chemical medications to treat depression, etc., which means that the name of the person's Doctor needs to be on every gun application for a fire arm which gets inspected for approval, or denial.

I do not know if any of your Cabinet has seen this website, but as you pursue your desire to keep the citizens of Texas safe, please have someone look at the following website:

When suicidal, or homicidal thoughts happen with people on these kinds of "serotonin selective reuptake inhibitors", it usually when people are just starting, or trying to get off these drugs.

You are welcome, Governor Abbott.
