Everytown for Gun Safety

TELL YOUR SENATORS: PASS A RED FLAG LAW

All too often, after an act of gun violence — such as gun suicide or mass shooting — has been committeed, law enforcement is able to point to warning signs exhibited by the shooter that indicated they posed a risk to themselves or others. A Red Flag law would empower family members and law enforcement officers to petition a court to temporarily restrict a person's access to guns when they show these warning signs.

Simply put, a Red Flag law can save lives by preventing gun violence tragedies before they happen, and we need our lawmakers to enact one on the federal level right away.

Dear Senator,

As your constituent, I urge you to support a Red Flag law and help keep our communities safe from gun violence. Gun violence is devastating our country every day. And whether it is a gun suicide, a mass shooting, or any other act of gun violence, shooters have often demonstrated warning signs before carrying out these tragic acts. Intervening when these warning signs are present may be one of the best chances we have to stop a tragic act of gun violence from occurring — and a Red Flag law can help us do just that.

A Red Flag law empowers family members and law enforcement officers to petition a court to temporarily restrict a person's access to guns when they pose a risk of using them to harm themselves or others.
