17. "Release a letter to health care providers clarifying that no federal law prohibits them from reporting threats of violence to law enforcement
13 to 17 worry or confuse me the most, that or both.
"Maximize enforcement efforts" I hope they put more behind that to prevent abuse of new power.
Again only my opinion but I think 17 is to clarify that if psychiatrist is told by a patient that he or she may be thinking about committing an act of
violence, there is no law against them reporting that to law enforcement. No legal ramifications for breaking doctor/patient privilege.
I agree, but, it was already the law for them to report. Even for an attorney, if you vocalize intent to do future harm, it is the law already to
report. It is redudant.
The Aurora incident is a good example. He voiced future intent, and his pschiatrist acted. It was the school that blocked the action. She did, by law,
what she was required to do.
