Indiana attorney general issues reminder about law allowing police to take guns from ‘dangerous’ people — FOX59


INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.– Following a mass shooting at a school in Parkland, Florida that left 17 people dead, Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill wants to increase awareness of Indiana’s “Red Flag Law.” The statute allows police to take possession of firearms from people they believe are dangerous. “Like all Americans, I was sickened by the horrifying news last week out of Parkland, Florida,” Attorney General Hill said. “Tragedies like this one are staining our nation. As we lift up our voices […]

    We witnessed the complete failure of Government agencies (The FBI and the Broward County Sheriffs Dept.). Both of these agencies already have in place legislation and laws that should have prevented this horrific murder crime by a mentally disturbed person.
    They failed their citizens and are not being held accountable. Instead we are looking for more Government bureaucracy to eliminate the next school mass murder event when the government bureaucracies failed to prevent the Parkland School mass murder event.
    We are still failing to address the root cause problems of mass murderers and the failures of these two government bureaucracies.

    If the Government were in charge of the North Pole they would be out of snow. If the Government were put in charge of the Sahara Desert they would run out of sand.

    We have become the former Soviet Union.

    Rynstone, So tell us what “government bureaucracies” failed to stop Stephen Paddock from murdering 58 and wounding another 422 in Las Vegas last October? While you’re at it explain to us what are “the root cause problems of mass murderers.”

    In his hotel room Paddock had, 24 firearms, a large quantity of ammunition, and numerous high-capacity magazines capable of holding up to 100 rounds apiece. Fourteen of the firearms were .223-caliber AR-15-type semi-automatic assault rifles and 8 were, .308-caliber AR-10-type semi-automatic assault rifles. The AR-15 rifles were fitted with a bump fire stocks. The AR-10 rifles were fitted with scopes and bi-pods. All the guns in Paddock’s hotel room and others found at his home were all purchased legally in Nevada, California, Texas, and Utah.

    You should ask your president about the Soviet Union.

    Progressive Liberals and the main street news media are nothing more than lapdogs for Marxism.

    From Hillary Clinton and former President Obama’s mentor and hero Saul Alinsky’s Rules For Radicals
    “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”

    Rynstone, so you choose to answer my legitimate questions with some diatribe about Marxism and Saul Alinsky. What are you afraid of?

    It’s funny that you mentioned one of Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. Apparently even radical righties thought Alinsky’s organizing skills were something to emulate. Did you know that Matt Kibbe, founder of the Tea Party group Freedom Works, used Alinsky’s (13) Rules for Radicals as an inspiration for his own (13) Rules for Patriots?

    Rules for Radicals–
    “Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.”
    “Never go outside the expertise of your people.”
    “Whenever possible go outside the expertise of the enemy.”
    “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”
    “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”
    “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.”
    “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.”
    “Keep the pressure on.”
    “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.”
    “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.”
    “If you push a negative hard and deep enough it will break through into its counterside”
    “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.”
    “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”

    Rules for Patriots—
    “Freedom Works”
    “Freedom’s Right”
    “Freedom Requires Work”
    “We Win by Building”
    “Government Goes to Those Who Show Up”
    “Winning is More Important Than Who Gets the Credit”
    “Think Like a Revolutionary”
    “Drive the Conversation”
    “Everyone is a Printing Press”
    “The Day After Election Day is Even More Important”
    “Leviathan Won’t Go Away in a Day’
    “Recruit for the Future”
    “Don’t Tread on Me”

    Ryn. Ah, yes. When you have no facts you pull out the old “Marxism” card. Well, the GOP are the ones who have been acting like Marxists…I am referring to Zeppo, Harpo and Groucho.

    I notice you can never respond with facts to my many factual posts about the government’s right, under our Constitution, to control guns. Hmmmm? In another thread I posted the actual sections of the DC v Heller decision you asked for …yet…no response…Hmmm?

    Here’s a carrot for you to munch on. Since the 1980s those in control of the federal government, largely controlled by the GOP, has made it clear that they want to “starve the beast”. They have refused to hire more IRS agents, refused to fund more local police departments, health services, educational programs, implement gun control measures,etc.

    Then, when these agencies do not have the resources to do the job, they blame the hardworking FBI agents or health care workers, etc.

    Your post points out the contradiction. First you say it was the RESPONSIBILITY of government to stop the shooter ahead of time and you blame the FBI and Broward County Sheriff. At the same time you complain about the government costing too much. What you fail to comprehend is that any law is only as good as the RESOURCES devoted to solving the problem. Unless you are Marie Antoinette you cannot have your cake and eat it, too.

    Some people want SERVICES, but don’t want to pay for them. They want something for nothing. You get what you pay for.
