Learn more about red flag laws to save lives

August 14th, 2019|Action of the Day|0 Comments

Three recent mass shootings have once again rocked the nation and triggered conversations by elected leaders about potential solutions to save lives.

Many prominent leaders — such as President Trump, Rep. Chris Stewart, Rep. John Curtis and Sen. Mitt Romney — support ‘red flag’ laws, evidence-based policy that would allow a judge to order temporary removal of firearms from a person who poses a danger to themselves or others. Red flag laws can save lives from suicide and other firearm deaths, such as mass shootings and domestic violence homicide.

Utah’s proposed red flag law is a strong measure developed with input from a wide range of stakeholders to address concerns from mental health, suicide prevention, domestic violence, law enforcement, courts and gun owners. This bill would save lives while protecting Second Amendment rights.
