Utah considers ‘red flag’ gun confiscation law


Certain Utah residents might be at risk of temporarily losing their gun rights thanks to the latest bill introduced in the state house.

Those deemed as dangerous may lose the right to own a gun as part of a “red flag” plan to prevent suicide, KJJZ News reported.

Utah looked over a similar bill following the Parkland, Fla. school shooting but set it aside. Now a modified bill has made its way to the State Capitol. 

Gun rights advocates say that the bill would weaken their Second Amendment rights. 

Republican Rep. Steve Handy of Davis County sponsored H.B. 209. “I’m a gun owner. I have a concealed carry permit. But why can’t we have the conversation?” he said.

Handy initially offered his red flag bill at the end of the 2018 session but was challenged by opponents who were worried about “the process and level of proof needed to obtain such a court order,” the Salt Lake Tribune reported.
