(Missourinet) A state lawmaker from St. Louis is citing last fall’s fatal shooting at Central Visual Performing Arts High School as the reason behind a so-called “red flag” bill he’s sponsoring in the Missouri House.

Democrat Peter Merideth says it would allow law enforcement to file a risk protection order, or RPO, against someone in possession of a firearm that’s deemed to pose a significant threat to others – and as a result seize any and all firearms from that person. The bill would also require a hearing before a judge within 14 days of weapons seizure to determine if the person can get them back. Republican leaders in the House and Senate are on record opposing such laws as a Second Amendment violation.
