President Donald Trump said today that he wants “red flag” laws to prevent more tragedy.
“We must make sure that those judged to pose a grave risk to public safety do not have access to firearms and that if they do those firearms can be taken through rapid due process,” Trump said. “That is why I have called for red flag laws, also known as extreme risk protection orders.”
Red flag laws allow law enforcement, family members and other concerned parties to petition a judge to confiscate guns from individuals who may cause harm to themselves or others. It’s a way of acting upon warning signs, “red flags,” in order to prevent potential gun violence.
