Red Flag Laws

When a person is in crisis and considering harming themselves or others, family members and law enforcement are often the first people to see the warning signs. Red Flag laws empower those who recognize these warning signs to intervene in order to prevent people in crisis from accessing firearms. These laws can help de-escalate emergency situations and are a proven way to intervene before a firearm suicide or mass shooting takes more American lives. States around the country are turning to Red Flag laws as a common-sense way to help reduce gun violence.
