Rubio: Judiciary Panel Must Take Up My 'Red Flag' Bill

Rubio: Judiciary Panel Must Take Up My 'Red Flag' Bill

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., has sent a letter to the leaders of the Senate Judiciary Committee urging them to consider his “red flag” bill, the Extreme Risk Protection Order and Violence Prevention Act.

Rubio introduced the bill in March of last year following the deadly mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

“This bill remains a priority of mine, and acknowledges the very unfortunate truth that we exist in a world where others seek to do harm,” Rubio wrote in a letter addressed to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and ranking member Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., on Tuesday.

“My bill simply seeks to incentivize states to enact their own risk protection orders, and ultimately, allow those who seek to do harm the ability to get the help they so desperately need,” Rubio continued. “To have a chance at preventing tragedies in the future, we must be able to identify dangerous behavior that will enable the appropriate individuals to take legal action to remove firearms from dangerous individuals.”
