We have red flag laws here and the psycho-bitch across the street has had the law called on her numerous times and been to the loony barn, but she’s still waddling the streets and threatening her husband.
I’m considering donating a gun to the cause, dropping it off in their driveway and seeing whether her or old man jenkins gets to it first and does us all a favor. With one dead and the other in prison, I can finally get some peace around here.
If someone is nuts, they don’t need a firearm to kill, even if they are in possession of firearms already. And not all of them show signs of previous mental illness.
The University of Texas clocktower shooter killed his wife and his mother before the shooting. He stabbed them to death with a knife.
In the 1999 Atlanta Georgia shooting, the shooter bludgeoned his wife and two young children with a hammer…AND he was also a suspect in the beating death of his first wife.
In the 2014 Isla Vista shootings, the shooter killed three men with a knife and used his car to mow over many people as he was shooting.
The Columbine shooters also had bombs and one of them had already been reported to the Sheriff’s department a year prior where he had been making death threats and they even found bomb materials at his house. All this before the shooting at the school. Many other shooters had also been to see a psychiatrist or showed signs of violent behavior, and yet they were allowed to walk the streets, and many still passing background checks and others just stealing the weapons they need.
Even if the guns are removed from the homes of people who are reported, there are many many ways to carry out a mass attack or killings without a firearm.
Red Flag laws are nothing more than another way to take away people’s firearms while at the same time giving the impression they are doing something to prevent a mentally ill person from doing harm. They don’t care about the people and they don’t care about mental illness. Once they have the guns, that’s all they care about. And if the person enters a mental health facility, it’s all about the money and government kickbacks. Then come the drugs, which makes it even worse.
