House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., appeared with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday while he signed a bill allowing authorities to remove guns from dangerous individuals, The Hill reports.

Cuomo signed the "Red Flag Bill," which was not supported by any Republicans in the state legislature, in New York City on Monday. The law will take effect in 180 days, and will allow family members, school officials, and/or law enforcement to obtain a court order confiscating firearms from people that are found to be an "extreme risk" to themselves or others.

"We are empowering teachers — not by giving them guns like the President wants — but by arming and empowering them with the law, so when a teacher or family member sees there is a problem, they can go to a judge and get a court-ordered evaluation," the governor said in a statement. "The Red Flag Bill will save lives and doesn't infringe on anybody's rights, and it is common sense."
