Grassley called for red flag laws while speaking at a gun range.

Per the Des Moines Register:
 

Grassley acknowledged "mistrust between gun rights advocates and gun control advocates that's led to a stalemate" in Congress, but said one area of agreement is that "we as a society must be better equipped to recognize the warning signs that almost always precede tragedies like the ones over the weekend."

President Donald Trump on Monday morning suggested that one way to address mass shootings is through so-called red flag laws, which would allow family members or law enforcement to limit a person's access to firearms if they are deemed a potential threat to the public.
