Red Flag Gun Laws: Yet Another Government Weapon For Compliance And Control
https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-...ce-and-control

A very long but very good read.

We never learn.

In the right (or wrong) hands, benevolent plans can easily be put to malevolent purposes.

Even the most well-intentioned government law or program can be—and has been—perverted, corrupted and used to advance illegitimate purposes once profit and power are added to the equation.

The war on terror, the war on drugs, the war on illegal immigration, asset forfeiture schemes, road safety schemes, school safety schemes, eminent domain: all of these programs started out as legitimate responses to pressing concerns and have since become weapons of compliance and control in the police state’s hands.

Mark my words: red flag gun laws, which allow the police to remove guns from people suspected of being threats, will only add to the government’s power.

We need to stop dangerous people before they act”: that’s the rationale behind the NRA’s support of these red flag laws, and at first glance, it appears to be perfectly reasonable to want to disarm individuals who are clearly suicidal and/or pose an “immediate danger” to themselves or others.

Where the problem arises, of course, is when you put the power to determine who is a potential danger in the hands of government agencies, the courts and the police.

We’ve been down this road before.

Remember, this is the same government that uses the words “anti-government,” “extremist” and “terrorist” interchangeably.

Theses just way to much government in America now. We are losing our freedom at an alarming rate, especially in Maryland and now with the 1302’s gun confiscation and people control law it’s far worse. And when hogan strengthens it this session or next to allow any interested persons to 1302 gun owners it’s gonna be infinitely worse.
I get what you mean and in a way, part of me agrees, BUT - there's more to it. It's what is left behind that can cause legal and financial problems for someone else. How about a teenager? I know of a recent suicide - should no one have tried to save the person who still had their entire life ahead?

I do have an exception - any dirt bag rapist, murder, etc.

Yes, as more people realize how they can weaponize Larry's signature piece of legislation, more and more innocent people are going get Hoganed.

Gunsamerica Digest has an article on our Red Flag murder. Comments are interesting, but unsurprisingly one-sided.
