    This will be held up as an example of why we need red flag laws.

    We do need Red Flag laws, just no where near as far reaching as the Dimocrats are pushing for. Personally if a person's shrink knows they are dangerous and can prove it, that person should not be allowed firearms. The real problem is we closed most of the nut houses instead of spending the money to make them right, and can not longer deal with crazies as they need to be.

    If the doctors and families would use the laws we already have in place and press the courts for adjudication of these people then it would help, it's not going to stop all of them, but it will dang sure help.

    Makes you wonder if they actually ever follow-up on complaints like this . . . and how some folks can think red flag laws would do any good at all.

    Am I 100% positive, no of course not, but its a theory I will not completely rule out.

    At this point I do not put anything past the left. When a shooter can walk up to people having ball practice, ask if they are republicans, upon hearing yes, open fire and start shooting people, nothing the left would do would surprise me.

    The concept of red flag laws is valid, but the application of those laws leaves much to be desired. But the question is why didn’t the family, in this case, take weapons away from this guy? It seems that in most of these instances, family, friends, authorities, etc. knew something needed to be done, but no one does.

    Well the FBI has been so busy investigating Russian collusion, Russian dressing, Russian something.

    And what exactly do you think is going on?

    One thing's for sure, if it turns out ANY of these nutjobs were routinely posting on sites like DU or Daily Kos, the media will NOT tell us about it. :(

    I respect your position, but our very own government employs psyops and misinformation to obtain their objectives. So do the media and both sides of the political agenda. Refusing to do so puts you on the sidelines as an observer.

    Wait. You're telling me the FBI failed to prevent yet another attack on US soil? This is my shocked face. :coffee2:

    I would ONLY agree if said shrink testifies in court and the defendant is afforded Due Process of law. Otherwise, hell no!

    LOL, that would assume they intend to actually follow said laws. In most cases they don't, just like AFCF and lying on 4473's. They don't investigate or prosecute the overwhelming majority of those, because that would be effective and then they couldn't sob and cry for more laws.

    Just call it what it really is, Red Scare 2.0.
