Americans grow wary as President Trump floats idea of ‘red flag’ laws

Not everyone is getting on board, and that could spell trouble for 2020.

The Second Amendment is a sacred thing here in the United States, and the President has been swiftly reminded of that fact in recent days.

After a pair of tragic mass shootings rocked the nation over the weekend, Americans have been clamoring for change.  These events seem to be nigh unstoppable in 2019, and increasing in frequency.  The shooters are almost always mentally disturbed in some way, with many acquaintances stating so after the fact.

For some, there is a belief that a far more comprehensive mental health policy could prevent these horrific acts from taking place, but that path would take a grand reimagine of society as a whole.  For too long we’ve stigmatized those dealing with mental health illness, and the rising cost of medicinal treatment is a major deterrent to getting the help needed – particularly in rural areas where outcasts and loners have fewer places to hide.

Other seem to think that marrying mental health to gun restrictions will be the way to go, but there are major concerns there as well.  So-called “red flag” laws, which the President has indicated could be strengthened in the coming weeks, open a window to tyranny in which the government would then be solely responsible for what constitutes a “risky” behavior.
