Preventing Gun Violence with "Extreme Risk" Laws

Join us for a discussion among Duke Professors Jeff Swanson & Kristin Goss and North Carolina State Representative Marcia Morey about 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 law school's Center for Firearms Law, will moderate the discussion about the law, history, policy, and effectiveness of this type of legislation. Light refreshments will be served. Sponsored by the Duke Center for Firearms Law. Contact Allison Rackley for more information.
