More of those Unintended Consequences

From The Stupids™.

James Wesley, Rawles astutely notes how the law of unintended consequences will rear its ugly head if this stupid shit passes into FEDERAL LAW soon:
In the U.S. Senate both Democrats and a few Republicans have re-introduces S.7, a bill that seeks to encourage states to pass red-flag laws that would make it easier for courts to disarm “dangerous people.” It is titled the “Extreme Risk Protection Order and Violence Prevention Act.” Led by Republican in Name Only (RINO) Marco Rubio, this law has a good chance of passage, and alarmingly President DJT has promised to sign such legislation. 
The proposed law flies in the face of the American tradition and the constitutional promise of Due Process, under the 14th Amendment. Typically, Red Flag laws do no give the accused any opportunity to defend themselves in court before having all of their firearms and ammunition seized by force. It is only post facto that they have their day in court, and then they must essentially beg to have their birthright restored. This is very bad legislation. I predict that the inevitable doorstep confrontations with police will result in far more deaths than the massacres that the authors of this bill claim will be prevented."
I bolded that last bit at the very end, as it's pretty easy to see, for me anyway, that the confrontations are a distinct feature for the statist bastards, even if they couldn't have imagined (likely) that as a side-effect of such legislation; they'll use that very fact as supposed proof of the efficacy of their insipid law. Dead cops will increase the public exposure of such things, and the draconian non-sense will only ramp up. Lather, rinse, repeat, as the cycle continues.
