    If they're gonna take the guns away from domestic abusers the police force is going to be cut almost in half.

    He can be yours too if you get in trouble with the law over guns. Makes you all warm and fuzzy inside just thinking about it, doesn't it?

    If someone is “obviously mentally unstable” (your words), every state has laws to commit a person. Period. Once adjudicated mentally unstable with proper due process, then take the guns and enforce CURRENT FEDERAL LAWS.

    Otherwise, you seem to be supporting the position that the government should be able to take guns from anyone they suspect to be mentally unstable—whatever that happens to be defined as based on the powers in control at the time. From what I am reading lately, any Trump supporter could be a red flag person.

    You should be ashamed of yourself for advocating such nonsense.

    He's already suggested in this thread that someone with an avatar pointing the middle finger shouldn't have guns. And based on his body of work around here I don't think he was kidding.

    The current federal laws are worded to disqualify people who have been declared to be insane. Or incapable of handling their own affairs, living independently. Not people who are paranoid, unstable, irrationally angry, or "just ain't right in the head."

    Another set of laws can only be invoked if the person presents a clear and present danger to himself or others. That's also a high standard to meet. I think red flag laws should aim lower, thus [legally] disarming some people who are too crazy to have modern firearms, but aren't so crazy that they need to be locked in a padded cell in a strait jacket.

    If they are “clearly mentally unstable” they can be hospitalized against their will. Every state has such laws. Follow the current laws. Once a state commits you based on your “clearly mentally unstable” situation, why wouldn’t the federal laws kick in? If you are not mentally unstable, you should not have your constitutional rights thrown in the toilet.

    It's one factor, one bit of evidence to take into consideration, when you want people's first image of your online presence to be somebody screaming F******* Y******! Ditto for having a skull tattoo on your face, choosing "Walking DeathDealer" as your screen name, and bragging how you dip your hollowpoint bullets in your own feces and seal the tips with wax to make them more lethal to the people you'll shoot. All are signs of people who have mental problems.

    You're wrong.
    Look it up.
    "Clearly mentally unstable" is not the current law. Google a Georgia Form 1013 snd read it for yourself. The person to be detained against their will and subject to a mental health evaluation must either be expressly violent and threatening, or suicidal, or they have to be so utterly brain dead that they cannot feed or clothe themselves.
