Does the NRA support Red Flag laws?

ICYMI: NRA Voices Support for Red Flag Laws. As reported yesterday by USA Today, the NRA has voiced conditional support for Red Flag Laws, which empower law enforcement and immediate family members to petition a court to temporarily prohibit a person from having guns if they present red flags for violent behavior.

The Red Flags Rule requires that each "financial institution" or "creditor" which includes most securities firms implement a written program to detect, prevent and mitigate identity theft in connection with the opening or maintenance of "covered accounts."

Senate GOP open to states allowing narrow gun restriction

Senate Republicans on Tuesday appeared open to encouraging states to move forward on so-called red flag bills to address gun violence. But broader federal legislation was off the table.

A Senate Judiciary Committee hearing focused on red flag laws that allow police and family members to petition a court to temporarily restrict access to firearms for people who could be an imminent threat to others or to themselves. Fourteen states and the District of Columbia have passed such bills.

The discussion around red flag laws comes amid an international reckoning over guns, with the recent suicide of a survivor of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., as well as the apparent suicide of another student, in addition to the suicide of the father of a student killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The hearing’s discussion around gun violence also comes after New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern banned assault weapons after a gunman attacked two mosques in a massacre in Christchurch that claimed 50 lives.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) acknowledged that any federal bill on guns would be a heavy lift, but state red flag laws could be a start.
