Maryland's Red Flag Law and Your Rights

On October 1, 2018, Maryland's extreme risk protective order law took effect. The "red flag" law, as it has been called, was enacted to establish a process by which a petitioner may seek a court order to prevent a respondent from purchasing or possessing any firearm or ammunition for the duration of the order under specified conditions. Principally, the law provides a means to prevent the possession of or to remove firearms from the possession of individuals who pose a threat to themselves or others. The law was first proposed as a response to the Great Mills High School murder-suicide and mass shootings at the Capital Gazette in Annapolis and in Jacksonville by a twenty-four-year-old from Howard County, as well as other acts of gun violence by individuals who never should have been allowed to access to firearms
