Republican lawmakers led by Sen. Lindsey Graham and his cohorts are discussing new “red flag” laws to take guns from “unstable” individuals.

Last November a 61-year-old Maryland man was shot dead while police were trying to serve him a “red flag” order.

The victim’s niece said the victim, Gary J. Willis, liked to speak his mind but was harmless.

Capital Gazette reported:

The Anne Arundel County police chief defended Maryland’s new “red flag” protective law Monday, just hours after a 61-year-old man was shot and killed while officers were trying to serve a court order requiring him to surrender his guns.

Chief Timothy Altomare said the fatal shooting in Ferndale was a sign that the law, which went into effect Oct. 1, is needed. There have been 19 protective orders sought in the county since then, tying Harford County for the most in Maryland, according to a report on the first month. Statewide, about half of the 114 orders sought have been granted.

“If you look at this morning’s outcome, it’s tough for us to say ‘Well, what did we prevent?’ ” he said. “Because we don’t know what we prevented or could’ve prevented. What would’ve happened if we didn’t go there at 5 a.m.?”

Nobody would have died and you would have saved your bullets for an actual criminal?

Facepalm
Well, I would say I like your post, but I don't like this story and it pisses me off because that guy who got killed could be me or anyone else.

This country is getting intolerable to live in anymore.

Ferndale, Maryland...

You can bet they already had a shoot to kill order and their mindset is what killed him!
this is the other way they will try to back door for gun removal.
The story did not say what happened exactly. What worthless journalism.
Road pirates are all scum.
