    Restricting people's rights has been going on since the beginning of our Nation. It's called law. Every... single... law... restricts a person's rights. The question is whether or not it's justified.

    Removing someone from society that is a danger to others and giving them the help they need for a mental disorder is justified.

    As for solving the problem, maybe our legislators would solve it is everyone got their heads out of their asses and tried for real solutions, rather than ideological platitudes.

    so where do you darw the line, just school shooting, mall shooting, your idea was to lock everyone up when they made a threat. and by exaggerate you mean when you said "But I get it, change nothing and let things keep deteriorating. Lose our Rights through inaction. Great plan!" And no survelillance is not a solution by itself. But I am not for locking everyone up over an angry post made on the internet either.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^AGREE^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    The numbers of innocent victims (people and dogs) of overzealous/cautious/chicken-shyt cops while seizing their lawfully owned property will make the few killed by lone, white supremacist, Trump donor, republican mass shooters will make the latter seem miniscule by comparison.

    wrong you don't have the right to murder. the law not to murder does not restrict a right, you don't have the right to rape or steal either, so what you wrote isn't true.

    Okay, I've posted my thoughts on a solution, but haven't seen anything from you other than "if they were properly investigated". What do you suggest? If you're not comfortable with the status quo, what should be changed?

    Now who is going off the deep end? Laws against murder have been around long before the Constitution was written. I believe a book called the Bible has some things in it about murder and 9 other things we are not supposed to do. The Constitution and Bill of Rights are there to limit the Government, not the people. The red flag laws you are trumpeting would remove most if not all restrictions from the Government. If this is acceptable to you, might I suggest a move to Russia, China, Laos, or your choice of many Muslim countries.

    I know it's a ridiculous argument. That's the point. So is the idea that taking a dangerously crazy person off the streets is unconstitutional. Get it?

    Also, I'm not at all in favor of Red Flag laws, as I have clearly said in this thread. My comments are about a viable and realistic alternative to them.
