Q1)On Monday of this week, the PA judiciary committee passed a bill making individuals w domestic violence convictions turn in firearms within 48 to law enforcement. Before the bill, it was 60 days & to a relative. SW can advocate and support similar bills in their state #macrosw
Elizabeth Roosa @ElizabethRoosa
@DrKristie @OfficialMacroSW A1: An applicable law is the welfare and institutions code 5150, it states if a person with a mental disorder is dangerous to others a member of a crisis team may take them into custody and place them in a facility #macrosw
Margaret Murry @14MurryM
@michell8588392 I agree that more education should be required for better gun control #macrosw

Part of the problem is trying to make decisions in an emotional state. Even this chat room of "social workers" seems to be emotionally charged. Relax, think about the what the problem is, and let's find a solution. Is it policy? Access? Mental illness? Accountability? #MacroSW

I think as social workers we first need to really understand our own personal views about guns, just like any other topic. Do these views clash with social work values? If so, maybe there’s some work to do. #macrosw
Aliesha @unLieshedd
@JoshNice4 I agree. So then we can have teachers shooting up classrooms. How about we secure the schools better, maybe metal detectors? We don’t see these mass shooting in the schools of poverty stricken areas because there are metal detectors to get in #MacroSW
Alexsis Murray @MurrayAlexsis
@VilleBananas they may agree that children need to be safe, but there are different mindsets to how this should be done. Some believe teachers should carry concealed weapons while others want more strict gun laws. it makes things such as wanting to keep children safe a difficult task #macrosw

@porndaughter Everyone who wants to purchase a gun should have to get evaluated for mental illnesses; it would be similar to a yearly physical exam. They do not have to be forced to get treatment however, if a red flag shows then they are not able to purchase a gun. #SWK315WWU #MacroSW
