ANNAPOLIS, MD (AP) – Maryland authorities and mental health professionals have been training to implement a new law that enables courts to temporarily restrict firearms access for people found to be a risk to themselves or others. The new red flag law that took effect Monday on the one-year anniversary of the nation’s deadliest mass shooting in modern history in Las Vegas. Montgomery County Sheriff Darren Popkin says Maryland authorities are notified daily about people who may be suffering from a mental health crisis and may have been expressing violent tendencies. He says the new law will save lives. It allows police, medical professionals, and close relatives to seek a court order.
