Letter: Proposed ‘red flag’ law seems perfectly sensible


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

I’m unsure why so many are up in arms about the proposed red flag law.

To me it’s a perfectly sensible law designed with public safety in mind and nothing else. It gives law enforcement the legal authority to simply remove the tools from someone who has shown irrational behavior, in case they harm others.

So please tell me what’s wrong with being able to call the police if someone who has been drinking at home, and the friends and family believe that they intend to drive? The police can then come to the house and legally confiscate all the cars, trucks and motorcycles owned by that person, just in case.

Sorry, I misunderstood — the legislation will only apply to firearms?
