Red flag law - gone wrong

This guy is retired ex-LEO, in his 80s, and concerned an SRO at a school was always leaving his post. Overheard in a restaurant speaking of his concern about school shootings, he was reported, fired from his job as a school crossing guard and his firearms confiscated. A CCL holder since the 1950s. This is what can and did go wrong.

Its the pussification of this country. Giving power to those that shouldn’t have it, and giving people a false sense of security. These laws are unconstitutional at best, and destroy the bill of rights. Everyone involved in these laws are tyrants, including the police executing these rubbish warrants. When you do the bidding of tyrants, you become the tyrants. Its only a matter of time when those serving these get killed.

No doubt there will be more of this BS.

Unfortunately this is what it will take to get this stuff thrown out. Sometimes it takes bad things to happen before people can see the light.

Unfortunately, that's true. Most government officials, both Republican and Democrat, have leanings that support some kind of unconstitutional behavior. The only way it gets overturned is something like this happens which becomes a court case. Then, if you get the right judge, the law gets overturned as unconstitutional.

We all know that the red flag laws are unconstitutional. But if it gets in front of an Obama judge, we're screwed. This is why elections matter. Say what you will about Trump as a communicator, he's been stacking the federal court at all levels with correct-thinking judges.

Red Flag laws are totally unnecessary.

Removing guns is stupid. IF the person is too "crazy" or evil to have guns then there are criminal and civil (mental health) laws already on the books that take the PERSON into custody. If the person is in jail or in a hospital they can't use guns.

One more feel good law that the liberals know has no utility. This is what they want. They don't work and then they can say that MORE laws must be passed since this one failed.

Red Flag laws are based entirely on the premise of guilty until proven innocent. Totally unconstitutional and I feel that eventually to courts will rule so. However, how many innocent people will be victimized until then?

And the abuse, its beginning to spread too. Now NJ: https://www.theblaze.com/news/new-je...led-a-petition

This patient was complaining over a botched surgery. He said something stupid to the doctor and the doctors attorney but all parties agree he never threatened anyone.

Its come down to this: dont make eye contact, dont say a word, just blend in to the background. So much for being proud 2A supporter. Someone needs to get these state laws repealed by getting them through the court system.

Gone wrong? More like “working as intended.” They really have no interest in stopping shootings that further their interests. Punishing those that vote against them, though...
