Center for Firearms Law | Preventing Gun Violence with "Extreme Risk" Laws

September 19, 2019

Prof. Jeff Swanson (School of Medicine), Prof Kristin Goss (Sanford School of Public Policy) and North Carolina State Representative Marcia Morey discuss Extreme Risk Protection Order laws (also known as "Red Flag" laws). These laws allow courts to order a person who poses an imminent risk to himself or others to temporarily surrender his firearms to law enforcement. Jake Charles, the executive director of the Duke Center for Firearms Law, will moderate the discussion about the law, history, policy, and effectiveness of this type of legislation.

Sponsored by the Duke Center for Firearms Law.
