Evers joins Kaul in supporting ‘red flag’ disarmament law

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Tony Evers is joining his fellow Democrat, Attorney General Josh Kaul in supporting a law allowing judges to take firearms away from people determined to be a threat to themselves or others.

Kaul voiced his support for a so-called “red flag” law during his inaugural speech on Monday. And on Wednesday, Evers told reporters that he would also support such a law if there were documentation to prove that “someone is incapable of owning and using a firearm.”

Thirteen states have some version of a “red flag” law. reported on Monday that Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, a Republican, said he was “open to the idea” of the “red flag” law in Wisconsin but was concerned about it being too broad.
