Dear opponents of a federal red-flag law:

Get down on your knees and thank God that this law is going through.

You worry about government overreach?

Under the current system, EVERYTHING IS LEFT TO THE DISCRETION OF THE PEOPLE EVALUATING YOU.

You can lose your guns if you are committed for reasons OTHER THAN PSYCHIATRIC.

Drug and alcohol abuse, for example.

You can lose your guns if you are TEMPORARILY PUT IN THE PSYCHIATRIC WING of a general hospital.

Do you know how many illnesses mimic insanity?

If you get sick and are irrational, and they put you in the psychiatric wing overnight, say goodbye to your guns.

FOREVER.

@ThomasWic yep. I lost my gun rights when I was admitted to the psych hospital due to severe alcohol and drug insanity. I must petition the court and pay $250 to get them reinstated. And I’ve been clean and sober since 12/26/2012. The day I got out.

@Edgewalker @ThomasWic

I quit drinking 4 years ago and so am I!

Addiction is a curse. I can't believe how I was living. I'm lucky I didn't kill myself at some point. This has all coincided with Trumps's rise and it feels a bit like providence, and I'm not particularly religious.

@Edgewalker

THERE WE GO.

Thanks for providing a concrete example.

I appreciate it.

@ThomasWic of course. At that time in my life I was truly a danger to myself and others Now it’s just a simple court petition and answer whatever questions they have and boom. I get them back. Just going though the paperwork this week

@Edgewalker @ThomasWic Congratulations for turning your life around. I am very happy to hear it.

@Edgewalker 👍🏻 Yes, people don't understand this.
Glad you are okay and are here to share your experience. Thank you.

@Edgewalker @ThomasWic I know where you're coming from! Of the 92 strands of DNA in each diploid human cell 46 of mine are alchohol based. 😉
