Part of the problem with red flag laws is that they don’t follow due process of law. The person in question doesn’t get to face his accuser and the entire thing is decided without his participation at all. The judge that determines they’re a risk has often never even laid eyes on the individual, yet they make a determination just the same.
Another problem is that there are a lot of people who say a lot of distasteful things that, while they’re disgusting, aren’t actually illegal to say. That’s because we have free speech to go along with our Second Amendment rights.
However, the state of New Jersey is celebrating taking the guns from a man who apparently just says really awful things a lot.
