2018erpoRallyJan. 14, 2019 -- In response to Governor Cuomo’s commitment to pass new gun safety legislation in his first 100 days, Westchester County District Attorney Anthony A. Scarpino, Jr. said, “We applaud Governor Cuomo on his vow to pass the Red Flag Bill which will prevent individuals who show signs of being a threat to themselves or others from possessing or purchasing guns. Giving law enforcement the ability to access Extreme Risk Protection Orders, whether the individual is flagged by family members, educators or law enforcement as at-risk of doing harm, is common-sense gun safety. We urge our lawmakers to give prosecutors and law enforcement this important tool to prevent a tragedy from happening.”
