Task force to meet on access to firearms

A task force studying the access mentally ill people have to firearms is holding its first meeting.

The task force is meeting Tuesday in Reisterstown.

The panel is studying whether current state laws are adequate or need to be changed.

The panel also is looking at policies relating to the access that law enforcement officers have to mental health records. The task force is expected to consider whether access to those records should be expanded.
