PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – It took 18th months and legislative pressure, but the state of Pennsylvania has agreed to sending the mental health records of people prohibited from buying firearms to a federal database. The news broke during a discussion between four suburban district attorneys and special contributor Larry Kane.
Risa Ferman, Montgomery County district attorney, has been pleading for this database information to be released and the state police in Pennsylvania have finally agreed.
She and other district attorneys agree that mental health information is vital to preventing mass killings.
