Marco Rubio on Extreme Risk Protection Orders

Admittedly, I’ve not read much about Senator Rubio’s record on gun reform but this seems well-intentioned and something that should be widely agreed upon.

The laws do not infringe on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding gun owners. In order for a state to be eligible for funding under our proposal, it would be required to enact strong due process protections and include a felony penalty for false reporting.

Red and blue states alike across the country are enacting red-flag laws, and a recent study showed these laws may be playing a role in preventing mass shootings. As of last month, state judges had signed off on over 2,400 risk protection orders in Florida since March 2018, undoubtedly pre-empting violence.
