Politician Promises Legislation To Combat Swatting

While no real specifics were given, at least one politician is calling for "increased jail time and restitution" for anyone convicted of swatting.

Sen. Schumer issued a press release today announcing that he is introducing legislation in the Senate that would increase penalties for those engaging in swatting, make those convicted of related crimes pay restitution to police, and close a loophole in federal law that would make it illegal for these wrongdoers to evade the law by disguising their identity.
