It’s in response to the relentless attack by Democrat socialist liberals who want to ban guns! Dems and libs do nothing but exploit these mass shootings for political gain and to fund raise and then there is their DO SOMETHING mantra!
Is the red flag law ideal, NO but it could have stopped the Sandy Hook shooter, the Dayton shooter and the Colorado theatre massacres because all three of those nut jobs were on police radar but nothing could be done because of laws on the books to “protect” everyone’s rights including the insane and mentally ill.
Liberals fought to protect the civil rights of the mentally ill until the laws were changed and State mental hospitals closed but are relentless in wanting to take away the 2nd Amendment rights of low abiding and sane citizens.
It’s the kind of craziness that leftist bring to Government.
