Extreme Risk Protective Order bill to return for 2019 session

Local News

Salt Lake City, Utah- (ABC4 News) – Representative Steve Handy, (R) Layton, is bringing back a bill to address gun violence.

Earlier this year, he got a late start on his Extreme Risk Protective Order bill and it failed to get out of a House committee.

The bill would create a court-ordered path to remove dangerous weapons from those who show extreme warning signs.

It came about following the Parkland, Florida shooting as a way to address mass shootings. But, Handy is also expanding the scope to address Utah’s suicide epidemic.

He stops by Inside Utah Politics to discuss the bill in more detail.
