It isn’t time for red flag laws. It isn’t time for raising the age to buy a weapon. The time has come for you to purchase a weapon and start taking responsibility for your own life.
Name the civil liberty that has ever been returned to the citizens after government took it away. Let me save you some time: It does not exist. Governments take away liberties and never return them outside of a political revolution.
The American people are not the ones in need of a “cooling off” period when they purchase weapons. It is the U.S. government that should be restricted from passing knee-jerk laws in the wake of tragedy to satiate media cries of “SOMEBODY DO SOMETHING!” That includes the fresh call for “red flag laws” that allow for confiscating people’s guns if someone else tags them as mentally ill or a danger to others.
