Simotas plugging her bill

Assemblywoman Aravella Simotas is plugging her bill requiring courts notify individuals who apply for an order of protection of their ability to obtain an Extreme Risk Protection Order:

“… “Our Red Flag law is a vital tool that can prevent gun violence before senseless tragedies occur and New Yorkers should be aware that they can seek this protection,” Simotas said. “New York is facing a serious domestic violence crisis and it is critical that every survivor is informed that they can obtain an extreme risk protection order to have law enforcement proactively intervene to find and remove guns from their abuser.” … “This life-saving measure will expand access to extreme risk protection orders reducing intimate partner abuse fatalities, mass shootings, and suicides in our state,” Simotas said …”

The bill in question is A-10487Senate companion is S-7929.
