Maryland's governor signed a number of bills into law Tuesday aimed at curbing gun violence.
The legislation includes a ban on bump stocks and the introduction of a so-called "red flag" law. That law lets family members and law enforcement ask a judge to temporarily restrict a person's access to firearms if they're believed to pose a threat to themselves or others.
California, Connecticut, Indiana, Oregon and Washington also have "red flag" laws.
Gov. Larry Hogan said the gun control laws are "common sense bipartisan measures that will keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill and those with criminal backgrounds."
Hogan also signed a bill Tuesday that allocates $5 million to help fund gun violence prevention programs.
