Santa Barbara – On Tuesday, June 27 at 1:30 p.m., Congressman Salud Carbajal will host an informational webinar with Santa Barbara County District Attorney John Savrnoch to discuss California’s Gun Violence Restraining Orders (GVROs), also known as a ‘red flag’ law, and explain how Central Coast residents can utilize this tool to help stop gun violence before it happens.

Rep. Carbajal’s bill to provide federal funding for expanded use and knowledge of red flag laws, the Extreme Risk Protection Order Act, was signed into law by President Biden one year ago this week.

That measure, which was included in the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act and signed by President Biden in June 2022, has already delivered $29 million to California this year.

The webinar will be broadcast live on the Congressman’s Facebook page.
