TOP STORIES:

SCHOOL SHOOTING FLAG LAWS

Since last year’s mass shooting at a Florida high school, states have seen a surge of interest in laws intended to make it easier to disarm people who show signs of being violent or suicidal. Nine states have passed laws over the past year allowing police or family members to seek court orders requiring people who are deemed threatening to surrender their guns, bringing the total to 14 states nationwide. Several more are likely to follow in the months ahead. By Ryan J. Foley. SENT: 1,060 words, photos graphic.
