    Why not? Wouldn't it depend on what was posted, just like if someone said something in any other venue?

    Liberal media will put out clickbait stories that show they have no clue about how guns work.
    The NRA wants you to send them more money.
    Silicone valley libs will try to censor Facebook, YouTube and Google and eBay.
    Blue states will pass guns laws that don’t prevent any crime but make law abiding citizens criminals. Red states will go to constitution carry.
    So really not squat will change because the partisan divide in our government is so wide going into the 2020 presidential race there is no common ground to base any legislation on.

    Where are you getting these standards? Who says a person has to have actually acted on their statements? Isn't that too late?

    Because that not what's allowed. If you post on the internet you going to kill yourself, The sheriff can't just come and pick you for a hold for seventy-two hour evaluation without some extenuating circumstances or some more evidence that you're going to kill yourself.

    If someone posts on FB that they are going to go to a school and kill as many children as they can, isn't it appropriate for that person to be taken into custody for a mental evaluation immediately? Or should we wait for the actually shooting to start?

    I didn't say acted on their statement, if your wife calls and says you said you were going to kill yourself, law enforcement arrives at your house, you have cut marks on your arms are you still threatening to kill yourself then that would be justified taking you in for a 72-hour evaluation. If your wife calls and says you going to kill yourself, law enforcement arrives and you say she's lying and there's isn't more evidence to the contrary they can't take you in

    If that's true, then that's where the law needs to be changed, isn't it?

    There is a huge area between these two extremes and most of the mass shooters have been in it.

    I'm not staying here what we should or shouldn't do I'm stating what the current rules are.

    At that point an investigation should be started and the person that posted would be questioned, they would not automatically be sent for an evaluation based on what they posted.
