“The number of gun deaths we have is not acceptable. I have sponsored legislation for years to establish a process to allow a court to temporarily remove guns from someone who is an imminent threat to use a gun to harm or kill self or others. That now is the law in one-third of all states, and it is showing promising signs of a positive effect. We need to keep those who should not have guns from getting them, we need to keep people from being able to easily kill many Virginians in a very short time, and we need to ensure that guns are cared for safely and securely.”
