ROME, N.Y. – The Rome manager whose guns were seized under the red flag law last week will not appear in court until March 16.

More than 80 guns were seized from the home of Michael and Jason Deshane after a video was spread on social media, showing threatening behavior from Jason toward a female employee.

Michael owns the Liquor Warehouse in Rome, and his son, Jason, works at the store.

A temporary extreme-risk protection order was issued by the state supreme court and served to both men after the video went viral.

The court appearance will address the future of the protection order.

Jason was schedule to appear in court Tuesday, but will not go in front of the judge until next month. Michael’s hearing is still scheduled for Wednesday.

The red flag law removes guns from the possession of people who are deemed to be a threat to themselves or others.
