December 2013 To the Members of the General Assembly of Pennsylvania: Senate Resolution 6 of 2013 directed the Joint State Government Commission to appoint an Advisory Committee to conduct a thorough and comprehensive analysis of violent crime and mass shootings, as well as other topics related to those issues, including mental illness and treatment, firearms regulation, school security, bullying, gang-related activities, educational issues, and cultural influences, including violent video games. The Advisory Committee recommends changes to the Mental Health Procedures Act, the Uniform Firearms Act, and statutes and  practices related to violent crime. It also recommends measures to make schools safer and ways to develop awareness, education, and other strategies to reduce and prevent violent crime. On behalf of the Joint State Government Commission, I would like to thank the members of the Advisory Committee for their hard work, deep consideration of sensitive topics, and commitment in completing this report. Respectfully submitted, Glenn J. Pasewicz Executive Director
