Preventing Gun Tragedies Before They Occur: Understanding California’s New Gun Violence Restraining Order Law
Date training recorded: Jan 10, 2018
Trainer(s): Allison Anderman
Sponsoring Organization(s): Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence
In response to the Isla Vista massacre on May 23, 2014, California enacted the Gun Violence Restraining Order (GVRO), the first law of its kind that allows family and household members to petition a court for an order temporarily removing a dangerous person’s access to guns. This law, that allows loved ones to prevent gun tragedies before they occur, has been used to disarm suicidal individuals, domestic abusers, and people on the terror watchlist. This webinar will help attendees understand the key aspects of this groundbreaking law that went into effect on January 1, 2016, and how to identify the circumstances under which it should be utilized to help prevent suicides and other gun violence.
1 hour of general CLE.
