The usual suspect.
As soon as you read these words in the story you can rest assured everything else after it is as fictitious as a Disney movie.
Red flag gun confiscation laws generally make it so almost anyone – a jealous ex, a vindictive, gun-hating neighbor, and so forth – can claim to law enforcement that someone is unfit to possess a gun and thus have his or her weapons forcibly seized without due process.
They claim this but can't produce a single one. That's all one needs to know.
They even go so far as to prove their own claims are so much manureIn other words, the system these worry-warts feared did NOT happen. A judge stopped it, just as reasonable people would expect. And when it got stopped by a judge, THAT represents "a lack of reason and practicality in enforcement of these red flag laws?" Geeze, what would you call it if the judge DIDN'T stop it?The judge did not accept the order, but the fact that it was made at all signals a lack of reason and practicality in the enforcement of these red flag laws, echoing a concern that many opposers to the statute have voiced.
