WHAT is a GVRO?  

Speak for Safety is a campaign to raise awareness of the GUN Violence Restraining Order (GVRO), a historic new tool for temporarily removing guns and ammunition from individuals who are at high risk of harming themselves or others.

 

What is a GVRO?  The Gun Violence Restraining Order is a LAW that allows family members, household members, and law enforcement to work with courts to temporarily remove guns and prevent the purchase of new guns by individuals who pose a significant risk of harm to themselves or others.   For more information, visit www.speakforsafety.org
