Rep. McSweeney Files Gun Violence Bills

House Bill 5849 aims to give law enforcement a mechanism to pursue people deemed a danger to themselves and others, and House Bill 5847 establishes that murder committed as a result of the intentional discharge of a firearm is an aggravating factor in first degree murder sentencing.

House Bill 5849 allows a circuit court to issue a warrant to search for and seize a firearm in the possession of a person who is deemed a danger to themselves or to others under certain conditions.

"We need to give law enforcement agencies the tools they need to help prevent potentially dangerous individuals from the unnecessary risk of harm to themselves or others with a firearm," McSweeney said. "We can do that while maintaining a respect for an individual’s Second Amendment rights and that is exactly what my legislation does.”
