Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Monday he plans on submitting bipartisan legislation to help states create "red flag" laws with President Donald Trump's support.

Graham announced in a statement he and Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., have worked out a deal for a bill that would push states to establish "'red flag' protection order" laws to help law enforcement identify people that should be prohibited from buying firearms.

"These grants will be given to law enforcement so they can hire and consult with mental health professionals to better determine which cases need to be acted upon," Graham said in the statement. "This grant program also requires robust due process and judicial review. It does allow for quick action." 

He said he spoke to Trump earlier Monday "about this proposal and he seems very supportive. He also said that he and Blumenthal plan on introducing the bill in the "very near future," and he hopes members of both parties "will join us to finally move forward in the effort to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people."

"We will be finalizing the details for this bill and reaching out to colleagues on both sides of the aisle in the coming days and weeks," Blumenthal said in a statement, according to The Hill. "I look forward to introducing final legislation with Senator Graham in the very near future."
