Justice for Students: Red Flag Laws in Massachusetts

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


I want to solve the risk of guns in a place that is supposed to be safe for kids and adults; schools. There have already been 17 school shootings in 2018 alone, and it needs to stop. My solution is to enact the Red Flag Laws in Massachusetts. The Red Flag Laws are a new policy allowing relatives or police to ask judges to temporarily strip gun rights from people who show warning signs of violence. Adolescents have shown signs of thinking of hurting others before actually doing so, but others close to them sometimes choose to ignore them. Five states have already enacted these Red Flag Laws, and Massachusetts is pushing to pass the law, but we need to finalize the law. This will impact me, because I want to feel safe in school, and my family does not want to worry about my safety either. These laws create a safer environment in schools, and could save countless lives.
