Group Seeks To Block Enactment Of Nevada Red Flag Gun Law
A conservative advocacy group wants quick action from a Nevada judge to block a statewide red flag gun law allowing firearms to be taken from people deemed to be a threat to themselves or others.
The group NevadansCAN is seeking an injunction against the law set to go into effect Jan. 2.
Red flag laws are designed to prevent gun violence by allowing weapons to be confiscated after a judge reviews an application by police or family members about a person's potentially threatening behavior.
The state attorney general declined comment.
