Discussion: Red Flag Laws

In response to mass shootings, several states have enacted red flag laws. A red flag law allows specific individuals, such as family members and medical professionals, to report someone to the police who they believe possesses a firearm and poses a risk to themselves or others. After a report is filed, a judge determines whether the firearms should be temporarily removed from the individual. Supporters argue that red flag laws could save numerous lives, while detractors argue that red flag laws are an infringement on the constitutional right to bear arms. In this Discussion, you consider both sides of this issue.

Are red flag laws sufficient for preventing violent crime? Why or why not?
