A 61-year-old man was shot and killed by a police officer trying to enforce Maryland’s new ‘red flag’ gun confiscation law on Monday morning.
Maryland passed a law on October 1st providing for “extreme risk protective orders,” also known as a “red flag” law, which allows virtually anyone to file an ex parte petition with the court alleging that the gun owner poses an immediate danger to himself or others because he or she possesses a firearm.
If the court issues the order, police will show up at the person’s residence and seize their firearms without any notice or warning whatsoever.
All it takes is hearsay from a family member, neighbor, dating partner, etc. for the gun owner to have his or her Second Amendment rights stripped away by a secret court hearing.
