I thought I would throw this out for discussion. This new (at least its new to me) “Red Flag” movement whereby is you are more or less considered a threat LEO can seize your firearms without judicial process for adjudication at a later date using “public safety” as a reason. I know we probably all can agree that we do not want a firearm in the hands of a nut job but who decides who is nuts and who is never gonna shoot anything other than his mouth off. Back to that old slippery slope thing....AGAIN!! I just can’t see how, with 100% accuracy, identifying who is a true threat and who you are violating their first and second amendment right. What y’all think??
Bill we as cops have been doing this for years in Texas. No often but before we had the ability to do involuntary commitment on someone that we saw as a danger themselves or others, we would come in ask the right questions and if we got the wrong answers we took all the guns in the house and they went into the property room. They could claim them after 48 hrs, if they could convince a detective. If not he would have to go to court to get them back. I was always surprised we didn’t wind up in court but in 30+ years it never happen.
