The DNC led anti firearms coalition seems to be pushing for enhanced Red Flag laws…allowing someone to claim that a person who own firearms is a danger to him/herself or others in the household or community.
Now, while the idea may or may not be a good one, I have an issue with the whole idea…
If a person is “Unstable” or “Dangerous” or “Violent” and a danger…then shouldn’t they be evaluated and sequestered (locked up) until we determine if they are a danger?
Lots of things can be used as weapons…..to hurt people.
Cars, knives, fire, poison, acids, clubs, etc.
If there is enough evidence to question as to the state of mind of the person involved for the court to order to remove his/her firearms from his home…shouldn’t he/she have a more thorough evaluation so that he/she can’t be a danger to family or society at large?
Change my mind.
