Attorney General William Barr announced a new DOJ plan this week that aims to prevent mass shootings and similar assaults; saying previous methods used to stop “terror attacks” must be revised for lone-gunman, mass-casualty events.
“Barr said in a memo to federal prosecutors and law enforcement officials that while authorities have been able to adopt some counter-terrorism measures to prevent mass shootings, the apparent abruptness of such attacks from people who exhibit ‘ambiguous indications of intent’ force officials to develop new means of stopping such attacks,” reports The Hill.

“While we are cognizant that irrational acts of violence by lone actors are very challenging to prevent in every instance, quiet professionals in the Department have a strong record of swift action in meeting these threats,” Barr wrote.
“I have no greater priority than the safety and well-being of our communities, and particularly our children, who are the most vulnerable among us to the threat of mass violence,” he added. “I am confident that you will continue to meet the challenge of protecting the public with your proven tenacity, creativity and commitment to justice.”
