Connecticut lawmakers approve expanding temporary gun seizure law; OK carrying of stun guns by adults

A key committee voted to update the state’s so-called red flag law that allows judges to seize firearms from troubled owners. The 1999 law was the first in the country to allow judges to order someone’s guns seized upon evidence they are a danger to themselves or others. The bill would add relatives, household members and medical professionals, including physicians, physician assistants, nurses and psychologists, among those permitted to file details about a person who is a danger to themselves or others.
