I don't know what the fix is on these. I think everyone agrees crazy people shouldn't have guns, but not sure how you can get there with red flags without trampling on the rights of everyone else. If they give advanced notice of a hearing, doesn't that just change the schedule of a mass shooting? Then they'd know, well, guess I better get this done before 130pm on Friday. Fun job to be the surprise knock on the door to confiscate the guns though. I wonder how many would avoid going to shrinks and doctors because of it? Would it be a public filing like restraining orders? If I were a burglar, those would be good houses to hit, would be nice to know you wouldn't encounter guns there. They aren't really concerned with suicides I guess or wouldn't they also take sharp and pointy things? And anything that could be fatal if ingested? I'd be surprised if judges wouldn't just rubber stamp the initial filing to confiscate the guns. They'd be afraid that if they denied it and then something bad happened, they'd get severe blowback in the media.
