Broward leads state in seizing guns under 'red flag' law passed after Parkland school shooting
police had obtained 34 court orders under a new law that allows guns to be taken from people considered at risk of harming themselves or others.
The South Florida Sun Sentinel surveyed courts throughout the state to determine how many orders have been issued. Eighteen of the state;s 20 districts responded, including the larger ones. No other district came close to Broward's numbers - Miami-Dade county has issued four, the Tampa area has issued three, and the Orlando area has issued six, the second highest number in the state.
