house Bill H.R. 838

Should a Federal Task Force of Threat Assessment Experts Help Congress Craft a Strategy to Reduce Targeted Violence?

Argument in favor

Mass killings are an ongoing problem in the U.S. Behavioral threat assessment is a proven tool that could help law enforcement better anticipate and prevent these tragic events. Setting a national strategy on this issue and providing grants will help it become more widespread.

Argument opposed

The Secret Service and Association of Threat Assessment Professionals already provide resources and training to help schools and others interested in behavioral threat assessment access resources on this topic. Thus, there’s no need for this bill.

    Being a Veteran of nearly 9 years active duty I have first hand knowledge of the dangers of the government being in charge of important matters! Medical records lost, burnt, etc! Forms filled out incorrectly. Forms not submitted. You name it! Murphy’s Law run rampant! So, do I trust the government making these types of laws concerning such a pivotal and obviously critical part of what keeps America a Republic?! No just no but HELL NO!!!

    This is a violation of my 4th amendment rights. Furthermore I do not support very vaguely worded laws that give the government the authority gather my behavioral information from social media into fusion centers and then act upon it. Especially when they get to define what is “threatening behavior”. Go to a judge and get a warrant.
