WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Elaine Luria (D-VA), advanced the Federal Extreme Risk Protection Order Act, commonly known as “red flag laws,” to keep guns out of the hands of those who pose a threat to themselves or others by implementing a nationwide extreme risk law and encouraging states to enact extreme risk laws.
“Creating and implementing a nationwide extreme risk law will help keep guns out of the hands of those who pose a threat to themselves or others, and it’s another step we are taking to reduce the epidemic of gun violence, save lives, and make our communities safer,” Rep. Luria said. “I am committed to curbing gun violence and keeping people safe in Coastal Virginia and across the country through commonsense measures while respecting the rights of law-abiding citizens.”
The legislation would allow family members, therapists, and law enforcement to petition a judge to sign a protective order to prevent an individual from purchasing or retaining their firearm for a certain period if they are determined to be a danger to themselves or others.
Rep. Luria previously supported the Extreme Risk Protection Order Act of 2019 in the 116th Congress.

Doug Luther says
So, if someone sees me carrying my sidearm in a grocery store and they get scared. They call the police, I get red flag…?!
That’s just plain bullshit! This is just because some liberal snowflake politician has an agenda to disarm American citizens.
How about working on mental health issues or better yet. Follow your oath of office. You sworn to up hold the Va and U.S. Constitution. What apart of the second amendment does Luria not understand? The word” infringe”?
How about Luria prosecuting Hunter Biden for lying on a federal firearms application. How about Hunter throwing the gun in the trash can. Surely this crack head has some mental issues. Until she prosecutes this scumbag she is NOT qualified to talk about any red flag proposals.
I think politician like Luria are just power hungry.
How about working on reducing gas prices in the commonwealth! You know, the bill the Democrates keep blocking to help Virginians! But nooooo, you’re on a shit show committee to stop someone who is a possible presidental candidate. NO ONE BELIEVES ANY DEMOCRATE! They all lie!!!
