Red Flag Laws Gain Steam Across New England... What's Next For New Hampshire?

U.S Air Force

Red flag laws allow family members or law enforcement to petition to get taken guns away from potential mass-shooters.  A handful of states have these laws, including Vermont, but more are considering this approach.  Still, they raise lots of questions: who decides that someone poses a threat, and do these laws make a difference?
