Connections: Discussing New York's Red Flag gun law

How is New York’s new “Red Flag” gun law supposed to work? The law is intended to stop gun violence before it happens. Can the law properly balance the rights of individuals with the desire for public safety? Who can legally remove firearms from individuals? What are the criteria? Who decides?

An upcoming panel will pull together members of law enforcement, school leadership, attorneys, and more. But first, they discuss the Red Flag law on Connections. Our guests:

  • Richard Dollinger, supervising justice, Matrimonial Part, 7th Judicial District; and supervising judge, Town & Village Courts, 7th Judicial District
  • Mark Concordia, associate professor of criminal justice, and director of the Homeland Security and Applied Intelligence Program at Roberts Wesleyan College
  • Paul Ciminelli, Second Amendment expert, attorney at Ciminelli & Ciminelli, and counsel to Monroe County Sheriff Todd Baxter
