Protecting Our Communities and Rights Act of 2019
This bill authorizes grants for states to implement extreme risk protection order laws (also known as red flag laws). An extreme risk protection order law permits a state court to issue an order that prohibits an individual from purchasing, possessing, or receiving a firearm.
Additionally, persons subject to extreme risk protection orders constitute a new category of prohibited persons (i.e., persons barred from receiving, possessing, shipping, or transporting a firearm or ammunition).
