Veterans Action Network Announces ‘Red Flag’ Laws Project
Veterans Action Network, a national political organization, recently announced the launch of a special project around the topic of ‘Red Flag’ laws.
A ‘Red Flag’ law is a gun-violence protection law that allows law enforcement and families to petition courts to remove firearms from a person who may present a danger to others or to themselves. Fourteen states have implemented some form of a ‘Red Flag’ law since 2005.
With the growing popularity of these types of laws across the United States, Veterans Action Network feels it’s important to engage veterans on the topic to ensure that they fully understand how these laws could potentially impact them and their families.
Dan Curran, President of the Board at Veterans Action Network, said, “We’re concerned about giving too much power to the judicial system to potentially strip veterans and citizens of their Second Amendment rights without due process.”
The goal of this project will be to engage veterans and the public on the topic of ‘Red Flag’ laws. Dan Curran added, “We don’t want to see the rights of the very people who put life and limb on the line for the country to get their own rights trampled on for the very reason of their service. Many veterans suffer from PTSD and these laws open the door for those veterans to be disproportionately affected.”
