Red Flag laws, no matter how well intentioned, will get abused horribly.

I can kind of see where, on some level, red flag laws make sense - no one wants a bona fide lunatic roaming freely with a gun intent on doing harm. BUT, how utterly naive or willfully ignorant does one have to be to trust the government with that power? Hasn't the Covid era taught them any lessons? Those laws will be abused, for political purposes, you can count on it. Stay far away from the slippery slope. Bottom line : shall not be infringed must hold, regardless of potential costs to individuals.
