This week Rhode Island became the latest state to allow authorities to take guns away from people who they say are at risk of committing acts of violence. Five other states already have so-called "red-flag laws," and more are considering joining them after last month's school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Here & Now's Peter O'Dowd speaks with Kimble Richardson (@Kimble_Indy), a licensed mental health counselor with Community Health Network in Indianapolis, about how Indiana's "red-flag" law works.

This segment aired on March 2, 2018.
