Florida Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) sent a letter to the Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) urging them to consider his bipartisan “red flag” bill (S.7), during the committee’s next business meeting.
Rubio introduced this bill in March 2018, following the Parkland Massacre of February 2018.
A one-pager of the legislation can be found here.
That same year, Florida enacted its own red flag gun confiscation order, becoming one of the first red states to fold to anti-gun pressure.
The letter can be read in its entirety here.
Following the Dayton and El Paso shootings, Rubio believes that it is now the appropriate time to pass this legislation:
The two horrific shootings that occurred this past weekend demonstrates why we must enact common sense reforms. Risk protection orders continue to have bipartisan support. Unfortunately, neither state in which these unimaginable tragedies occurred currently have a “red flag” law. It is too soon to say whether the deranged culprits who carried out these unspeakable acts would have been “flagged,” however, the options available to family members and law enforcement are varied, and often limited.
He then broke down what his bill entails:
My bill simply seeks to incentivize states to enact their own risk protection orders, and ultimately, allow those who seek to do harm the ability to get the help they so desperately need. To have a chance at preventing tragedies in the future, we must be able to identify dangerous behavior that will enable the appropriate individuals to take legal action to remove firearms from dangerous individuals.
Two bills we should pass right away which could prevent future terror attacks like the ones this weekend:

Rubio is not alone in his push for gun control.
This has the makings of the biggest Second Amendment fight in recent memory.
Gun rights supporters will definitely have their hands full in the next few weeks.

Bernie Sanders Supporter Out on Bail After Trying to Torch Republican Office in California
A California man who attempted to burn down the Republican Party of Humboldt headquarters is free to roam the streets after spending only a day in jail before posting bail.
According to KRCR News, Eureka Police Department officers responded to a call early in the morning of a man smashing the windows at the Republican headquarters. A witnessed provided a description of the suspect and claimed he was seen riding a bicycle in the direction of the bay.
Officers quickly arrived at the scene and found the man on the Boardwalk. They claimed that the suspect tried to flee the scene on bike but was detained after a short pursuit. According to the EPD, the suspect was found holding a “Trump” political flag. His bicycle had a “Bernie” political sticker tacked on, according to the police report.
The man was identified as 43-year-old Michael Valls of Eureka and was found possessing items connecting him to the vandalism on 5th Street, police stated.
In the investigation, police claimed they found three large front plate glass windows that were apparently shattered.
Police added that a “Trump” political flag was taken from inside one of the shattered windows, which matched the flag Valls had in his possession.
A liquid chemical was also found inside the building. Humboldt Bay Fire arrived at the scene and discovered that the liquid was flammable, the EPD recollected.
Valls was arrested and sent to Humboldt County Correctional Facility for attempted arson, burglary, felony vandalism, resisting arrest and providing a false name.
Valls was held in jail on $25,000 bail Saturday. He would later be bailed out on Sunday.
This was not an isolated incident.
On numerous occasions, vandals have targeted the Humboldt GOP headquarters in Eureka.
