    Default Red Flag Law- Extreme Risk Protective Order

    Pres. Donald Trump called for a national Red Flag law on Monday morning after two weekend mass shootings. A similar law, or or Extreme Risk Protective Order, was signed into law by Colorado Gov. Jared Polis earlier this year.

    @LindseyGrahamSC
    says he's made a deal with @SenBlumenthal
    to create a federal grant program to encourage states to adopt 'red flag' laws.

    Hopes to introduce legislation soon and says Trump "seems very supportive" of the idea after conversation this morning.

    ~~

    Looks like the plan to offer states carrots to pass red flag laws is coming together. Red flag laws let courts temporarily take weapons from people deemed threats to themselves/others.

    I would like to see the concept expanded so that an individual who:

    a) Has amassed an arsenal,

    and

    b) Has expressed white supremacy views either online or in person,

    -has their guns taken away.

    Guns are contrary to logic. You should have to prove you need one, take a training program and be regularly tested. Not unlike a drivers license.

    so you want to see someone who has never committed a crime have his property and liberty taken away? and you wonder why we consider liberalism a mental disease
    The war on crime, war on drugs, war on terror, and now the war on opiods.............there's a reason they call it a war. So you idiots will easily accept the collateral damage of innocents

    A red flag law is a gun violence prevention law that permits police or family members to petition a state court to order the temporary removal of firearms from a person who may present a danger to others or themselves.
    It's a good compromise. Being temporary offers the person the chance to show how the claim against them is false.
    I'm willing to err on the side of caution.
    Abortion rights dogma can obscure human reason and harden the human heart so much that the same person who feels empathy for animal suffering can lack compassion for unborn children who experience lethal violence and excruciating pain in abortion.

    Unborn animals must be protected and safe in their nesting places........humans must not.

    To abort something is to end something which has begun.
    To abort life is to end it.

    What is your plan for either preventing or removing at a later time, a firearm from one who is mentally unsound?

    Lots of us have more than one weapon. The Constitution does not limit the number, it just protects their possession, Snowflake.

    How are you going to take them from criminals? They are sold daily on the streets.

    There are ~ 300 million guns in America.

    Will you take them from BLM, the Black Panthers, ANTIFA..lots of luck with that. They espouse.black supremacy views either online or in person,
