The old Soviet Union, like many totalitarian governments, refused to allow dissent and free speech or citizen gun ownership. In the 1980’s they abused psychiatry to declare dissidence mentally unfit and therefore not deserving of many of the freedoms that we enjoy in America.
Those today, who favor “red flag laws” need to take a trip down memory lane. These proposed laws have the potential to allow the government to abuse psychiatry to deprive Americans of a fundamental right…our second amendment right.
It is important that average citizens have the same right to self-defense that the Minneapolis Council / Hollywood Elite / Washington Politicians have through their security staff. That right is the right to gun ownership. The right to self-defense is a right that must be given to all, not just the elite political establishment.
