Bill to reduce suicide deaths by firearm passes Montgomery County Council

December 13, 2023

Firearms retailers in Montgomery County will be required to distribute suicide prevention literature to customers under new legislation passed by the Montgomery County Council on Tuesday. “I introduced [the bill] to raise awareness about suicide prevention and to urge Montgomery County to do more than simply express our thoughts and prayers every time we see a tragedy occur,” said councilmember Evan Glass (D-At-large), lead sponsor of the Suicide Awareness and Firearm Education (SAFE) Act, before the vote.
