The current bipartisan deal on gun regulations includes more background checks for people under 21, mental health and school safety funding, and state grants for red flag laws.

The deal proposes more resources for state red flag laws. These laws would allow law enforcement to confiscate a person’s gun—without due process—if a judge determines they pose an immediate threat to themselves or others.

A history lesson: The Soviet Union labeled political opposition and dissent as psychiatric problems. Increasing political polarization and extremism could lend their way to red flag laws being used similarly here in the United States, viewing political opposition as dangerous and unfit to exercise the second amendment.
