Mayor Gusciora believes that federal gun laws must be strengthened in order to solve the issue.

This is why we need federal solutions to the gun violence epidemic.”

Could Bar Owners be Responsible for Violence on their Properties?
Attorney Brian Kent at www.crimevictim.attorney, specializes in working with victims of preventable violent crime in lawsuits against commercial property owners. Below is a brief generalization of Brian’s thoughts on bar owner’s liability for violent crime on their properties.
“Commercial property owners of bars and restaurants do have a legal duty of providing their customers with appropriate security to ensure their safety. If this legal duty is not met, the property owner may be partially responsible for the violence that takes place on their property. Additionally, if there is a history of violence in the area and or on the property, the owner is responsible for strengthening the security measures of the bar”, stated Mr. Kent.
