Description

Action against parents for minor knowingly possessing a firearm on school property; civil liability. Creates a civil cause of action against the parent, guardian, legal custodian, or other person standing in loco parentis of a minor for injury to the person or property of another or for wrongful death resulting from the minor knowingly possessing a firearm on school property if it can be shown by clear and convincing evidence that the minor came into possession of such firearm because of the failure of the civil defendant to reasonably secure the firearm. The bill provides that any recovery from the parent, guardian, legal custodian, or other person standing in loco parentis of such minor shall not preclude full recovery from such minor, except to the amount of recovery from such parent, guardian, legal custodian, or other person standing in loco parentis.
