Experts say implementing “red flag laws” could reduce mass shootings and suicides

Experts are saying that implementing “red flag laws” could not only reduce the likelihood of mass shootings, but it could also prevent suicides.

According to the CDC, roughly 40,000 individuals have died from guns in 2017, with 60 percent of the deaths caused by self-inflicted wounds.

Red flag laws are gun prevention laws that allow individuals to report anyone who may be dangerous to both themselves and to others, and temporarily remove the person’s firearm.

17 states have enacted red flag laws as of August 2019.
