In today's episode, Joan tells JJ and JP about her long history of activism following the loss of her sister, why extreme risk prevention orders (often referred to as "ERPOs," sometimes as "red flag laws") need to be passed into law wherever they are proposed, why background checks matter, and how to deal with internet trolls.
