If you have a credible tip that you are planning a shooting, they have enough for a warrant. And if "being wacko while having firearms" is considered probably cause to think you may harm someone, they wouldn't need a warrant to conduct a search. It all comes down to the judges and how they treat this once a person that has this happen to them challenges it in court.Cap wrote:So how is that supposed to work? If law enforcement gets a credible tip that you're planning a shooting, or wacko, or whatever, they just show up at your house, force their way in, confiscate all the weapons they find, and worry about warrants and stuff later?Nodack wrote:This is kind of a big thing. That sound bite by Trump will be used a lot in the future. It sounded like Trump was saying that if there is any kind of doubt about a persons mental health that they should take his guns first and sort out due process later. If true then I can say that after a year of hating Trumps every decision that I finally agree with him on something.
But I doubt it gets that far. If you are a gun nut and do something stupid where people are "coming to take your guns" you will likely not sit back and let it happen. Then you get to bone's comment.
