If there is evidence that suggests a person is dangerous to society, can a court order prohibit them from owning a firearm?

That's what Senate Minority Leader Lee Harris is pushing for in Tennessee. It's called a Gun Violence Restraining Order. He along with Ben Hall will discuss this legislation, along with his proposal to ban bump stocks.

What do you think? Would a gun violence restraining order get us one step closer to stopping these shooting sprees?
