Expanding The Red Flag Laws To Include Other Categories of People Has Begun

May 10, 2019

 

May 5th, 2019: The California Assembly passed a bill to add school faculty, employers and co-workers to the list of people who can ask a judge to take away someone’s guns.

 

Bill, AB-61, passed the California Assembly  by 54-16 vote and now goes to the state Senate. It will greatly expand who can file for a Gun Violence Restraining Order in California’s so-called “red flag law.”

 

The current law, signed in 2014, allows gun confiscation for up to 21 days from a legal gun owner who is considered to be a “significant danger.” This initial order can be extended up to a year if the circumstances warrant. In the existing law, only law enforcement and immediate family  can request an GVROs. AB 61 expands this to include school employees such as guidance counselors, teachers, employers and co-workers of a subject.

 

The state Department of Justice has issued GVROs 614 times from 2016 to the end of 2018.
