PANEL DISCUSSION: Red Flag Laws: Emerging Research on ERPOs to Stop Gun Violence

Date and time: Thu, June 9, 2022 @ 10 AM - 11 AM PT

RSVP: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/extreme-risk-protection-orders-what-the-research-tells-us-registration-355358706457


In light of recent and tragic events, please join us for a webinar on Extreme Risk Protection Orders (ERPO). ERPOs – known in some contexts as "red flag laws" – are policies allowing a court to temporarily remove firearms from an individual at risk of hurting themself or others, based on the assessment of loved ones and/or law enforcement.

This webinar will discuss some of the most recent and compelling research on ERPOs, including a study on the impact of ERPO on gun suicide in Connecticut, a study examining the impact of ERPO on potential mass shootings, and an ongoing multi-state evaluation of the impact of ERPO on suicide risk across states - as well as analysis of the due process implications of ERPO and related policies.

PANELISTS:

--Joseph Blocher: Lanty L. Smith '67 Distinguished Professor of Law, Duke Law School and Co-Director, Duke Center for Firearms Law

--Jeff Swanson: Professor in Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Duke University School of Medicine; Faculty Affiliate at the Wilson Center for Science and Justice and the Center for Firearms Law at Duke Law School and the Center for Child and Family Policy at Duke Sanford School of Public Policy

--Garen Wintemute: Susan P. Baker-Stephen P. Teret Chair in Violence Prevention and Director, Violence Prevention Research Program at the University of California-Davis

--April Zeoli: Associate Professor, School of Criminal Justice and AgBioResearch and Associate Director for Undergraduate Education, School of Criminal Justice, Michigan State University; Faculty Affiliate, Michigan State University College of Law
