2.) Rhode Island
The Rhode Island state government staunchly supports red flag laws – these gun violence prevention laws vary from state to state, but all restrict the rights of gun owners.

They let the police seize your firearms if a court deems you a threat to yourself or others. In some cases, this process can be initiated by a family member; i.e., an angry spouse petitioning the court.

Many argue a mechanism for gun seizure already exists through restraining orders and other existing measures.
