Another SAFE Act ‘now what?’: mental health reports not acted upon – Local law enforcement officials are confused by yet another component of the Secure Ammunition and Firearm Enforcement Act, this time the making public of the number of at-risk clients that mental health professionals have submitted to the state. Under the SAFE Act, mental health practitioners are supposed to report to the state clients who may present a danger to themselves or others by owning a gun. Those who are licensed gun owners are subject to confiscation of their guns by county law enforcement personnel. As with many other aspects of the law, however, local officials say there is no clear guidance on what the state expects.
