“Red flag” bill to help prevent at risk individuals from buying guns

NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) – Massachusetts lawmakers want to make the state’s strict gun laws even stricter. It’s called the “red flag” bill and it could take away gun licenses. Last week, a 19-member legislative committee recommended a bill that would authorize courts to prevent people from owning guns if they’re "deemed dangerous." If approved, the law would let a court temporarily prohibit someone from possessing or buying a gun, if they are a risk to themselves or others. The proposed “red flag” bill would let family members or police officers issue an extreme risk protection order, ultimately taking away your rights to own a gun for one year. The “red flag” law is expected to get a vote in the House early May.
