Anti-Red Flag Laws Heard Wednesday

The Missouri House Emerging Issues committee heard a set of bills on Wednesday that would ban future red flag laws from being enacted.

A red flag law permits the courts to legally stop a person from possessing a firearm if they are considered dangerous.

Kristie Faulstich  is a social studies teacher at Central Visual and Performing Arts. The St. Louis high school had a deadly shooting in October. She says that red flag laws could have saved the student and teacher’s life.

Republican Representative Bill Hardwick from Waynesville is the sponsor of House Bill 701. Republican Representative Mazzie Boyd from Hamilton is the sponsor of House Bill 712.
