GOVERNOR BRUCE RAUNER IS SIGNING A NEW LAW TO HELP KEEP GUNS OUT OF THE HANDS OF THOSE THREATENING VIOLENCE. 
 
THE SO-CALLED “RED FLAG” LAW GIVES FAMILY MEMBERS OR POLICE WORRIED THAT A LOVED ONE MAY HURT THEMSELVES OR OTHERS A PLACE TO EXPRESS THEIR CONCERNS. THEY CAN PETITION THE COURT TO HAVE THAT PERSON’S GUNS TAKEN AWAY FOR SIX MONTHS, WHICH STATE POLICE DIRECTOR LEO SCHMITZ FULLY SUPPORTS.
 

 

 
SCHMITZ SAYS THE LAW ALSO PROTECTS THE RIGHTS OF THE INDIVIDUAL IN QUESTION…GIVING THEM A CHANCE TO APPEAL DURING THE SIX-MONTH PERIOD.
