Connecticut’s updated “red flag” law was passed in June. Police say the update has mostly helped with suicidal residents — some of whom do not even own guns.

WSHU’s Ebong Udoma spoke with CT Mirror’s Dave Altimari to discuss his article, “CT police: Updated ‘red flag’ law used largely for suicide threats,” as part of the collaborative podcast Long Story Short. You can read the story, which he wrote with Andrew Brown and José Luis Martínez, here.

Long Story Short takes you behind the scenes at the home of public policy journalism in Connecticut. Each week WSHU’s Ebong Udoma joins us to rundown the Sunday Feature with our reporters. We also present specials on CT Mirror’s big investigative pieces.
