Would red flag gun laws make Minnesota safer? Experts say more research needed
Opponents say taking a person’s firearms because they might use them for harm is unconstitutional. Rob Doar, the senior vice president of the Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus, also disputed the claim red flag laws reduce deaths by suicide.
“Not a single state that’s passed red flag laws has seen a reduction in suicide rate, which is often a claim that’s been made,” Doar said.
