I don't know if the Mises Institute gets antsy about being quoted on somebody else's site, so I won't quote any more, except to say that this is the "money quote," as far as I'm concerned:
Gun control may be coming to a legislature near you.
In the wake of the Parkland, Florida, and Santa Fe, Texas, shootings, elected officials on both sides of the political aisle are rallying around "red flag” legislation.
Extreme Risk Protection Orders (ERPOs), informally known as red flag laws, are gaining traction in legislatures nationwide. Red flag laws are presented as a common-sense proposal to disarm people who allegedly present a danger to themselves or others around them.
Political leaders assure gun owners red flag laws won’t trample over civil liberties and are a middle ground solution that appease pro-gunners and gun controllers alike. But the devil is in the details when dealing with any form of government intervention.
It is no secret when both parties come together on legislative matters, nothing good can come out of it.
