2nd amendment

'Red flag' laws could get Senate hearing

Oct 25, 2019

A package of bills in the state house could enact so-called “red-flag laws” that allow law enforcement to take away firearms from people who could be a risk to themselves or others. 

The legislation has been sitting in the senate since February but now bill sponsors say they have been promised a hearing.

Similar laws have or will soon be enacted in 18 other states including Illinois and Connecticut. The laws have been posited as way to reduce mass shootings, domestic violence and suicide.
