When are the Santa Fe shooter's parents, or any other mass shooter under 18's parents, going to be charged with making firearms accessible to minors?

Putting adults in jail for not keeping their firearms secure is a big step in the right direction.

Just my .02,

We live in a society where nobody wants to take responsibility for their actions so it's easier to blame an inanimate who can't defend itself.
In order to charge the parents then a law would have to be made up. He was 17, parents not required to lock up firearms from him.

If I can't remember where I secured my gun, but it might be in a safe deposit box that I won't be able to get to for a couple weeks, should I report it just to be safe?
Is this really an issue for you? Do you have so many places that you secure your firearm, you might "forget" where you secured it?
Unfortunately, yes. Before leaving town on vacation, I sometimes move a few of my more valuable guns to a safe deposit box. I had a minor panic attack the other day when I was cleaning out my safe, and got to the back row of handguns (where I keep my safe queens) and saw that my Sig X5 and Nighthawk Custom 1911 were both missing. It actually took me a couple hours of scouring the safe next to my bed, my car, my range bags, etc., before I remembered that I never got them out of the SD box after my last trip.

I thought maybe I had been hit by a really picky thief who ignored the other guns they were reaching over to get to these two :lol::
I hope you weren't making a list of forum member suspects, who you think would know the difference. :shock:

I'm opposed to pretty much all of the proposed new gun laws. In particular the "revenge" proposal that allows people to have firearms taken away from relatives they are arguing with, under the guise of a red flag law, and the requirement to file a police report within 10 days of the time that a person "should have known" that a gun was lost or stolen. If I can't remember where I secured my gun, but it might be in a safe deposit box that I won't be able to get to for a couple weeks, should I report it just to be safe? And am I given absolute immunity from any charges for filing a false police report if the gun turns out to not in fact be lost/stolen?
I agree with most of what you are saying. If this red flag law does come into being, it should also include mandatory stiff penalties for the abuse of such law. I am not sure why school district employees are given special attention to file a petition, when most (yes, I said most) think that firearms somehow are dangerous all by themselves. I actually think the school district employee was a "feel good" addition to a poor thought process. Why are they anymore special than anyone else???
Filing a false police report should not have immunity when you knew it to be false when filed. If you thought the facts were such that a police report needed to be filed then it is not false. Discovery may prove that the report was erroneous, but not false because it was not known to be false at the time of the report.
