The Red Flag Law, also known as the Extreme Risk Protection Order Law, prevents individuals who are at risk of hurting themselves or others from purchasing or possessing firearms, rifles, or shotguns. This law, which went into effect in August 2019, is an important tool in preventing domestic violence homicides, suicides, and situations of mass violence, but many practitioners still don’t know about Emergency Risk Protection Orders (ERPO) and how to obtain this civil protection order.

In response to the 5-14-22 tragedy, the Minority Bar Association of WNY has joined with the Bar Association of Erie County and the Empire Justice Center to address this important legal issue related to mass shootings. This is the first part of a series. We hope you can continue the dialogue with us.
