Indiana AG Curtis Hill attends meeting with Pres. Trump on School Security – Feb 22
Attorney General Curtis Hill visited the White House today to speak with President Donald Trump, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi and others about improving school safety and strengthening firearm laws.
The meeting came a week after a tragic mass shooting at a Florida school and a day after Attorney General Hill sent an advisory to public safety officers statewide reminding them of Indiana’s “Red Flag Law” – a statute enabling officers to take possession of guns, pending formal hearings, from people they believe pose threats to themselves or others.
“I shared with the President today the same themes I have shared with Hoosiers at home,” Attorney General Hill said. “We must strengthen school security through the effective use of technology and personnel. We must keep guns from dangerous people through more deliberate application of Indiana’s Red Flag Law. And we must double down on gun crimes by further enhancing penalties for offenses committed with guns beyond what current laws provide.”
