All of the alarms around Florida high school shooting suspects are insufficient for relatives, authorities or schools to request courts to issue warrants to prevent them possessing firearms.
So far, only five states in the United States have an invitation which allows family members, guardians or police to ask judges to temporarily withdraw the right to purchase or possess weapons from persons showing signs of violence.
The move is called "danger warning legislation" or the prevention of firearms violence. According to supporters, the law could save lives by preventing the shooting and suicide.
Florida, the state where Nikolas Cruz was accused of using an AR-15 rifle to kill 17 people in his former school, has no such law .
In 2014, California became the first state to allow family members to demand that judges seize firearms from relatives who seem to pose a threat. [ka/jm]
