Are ‘Red-Flag’ Laws a Rare Agreement on Gun Control?

A Republican lawmaker in Pennsylvania wants to make his state the second with a GOP-controlled legislature to pass a “red flag” law that allows seizure of weapons from people deemed dangerous. Rep. Todd Stephens said he was prompted to look into the idea by a constituent who is a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association, the Wall Street Journal reports. Fifteen states have red-flag laws, including pro-gun strongholds like Vermont and Florida. Ten passed their laws since the 2018 Parkland, Fl., high school massacre in which the shooter previously said he intended to kill people. A bill introduced in Congress last month with bipartisan support would give grants for police training to states with red-flag laws.
