Focus on the drivers of criminal activity – mental illness, drug activities, domestic violence, etc.  Provide additional federal research funding for mental health research and treatment. Work with states to provide better treatment for mental illness. Ban Bump Stocks. Provide protocols and additional resources to states and local school districts to harden our schools to prevent criminals from entering schools including metal detectors, more secure entrances, security training, and security personnel.
