'Red Flag' law proposed in Kentucky to take guns from people perceived as a threat - support from both sides
Very vague. What constitutes a dangerous person? They are depriving liberty and property without due process.The Extreme Risk Protection Orders would allow family or police to petition a judge to temporarily take guns away from someone who is an immediate threat to themselves or others.
Adams voted against the permitless concealed carry bill. I tried reaching out to her as my state senator but she has not responded enthusiastically to a sit-down talk on her anti-gun stance.Louisville Democratic State Senator Morgan McGarvey is teaming up with Republican State Senators Julie Raque Adams of Louisville, and Paul Hornback of Shelbyville, to support the measure. Louisville Metro Police also supports the "red flag" proposal.
Given that charges are brought at the discretion of the Commonwealth's attorney, I foresee NONE of the false claims being prosecuted. In my experience with EPOs, the standard for issuing them is VERY low. I'm talking a subjective hunch on whether that thing the applicant is saying is true or not. From my colleagues and friends who have worked in the Jefferson County domestic violence clinic, they report that no evidence is needed for an EPO, just go in and ask for one. Cops come and take your guns, you get your day in court two weeks later. Even then, most continue on to being pursued as DVOs and the like. I have yet to see one false EPO claim being prosecuted.false reporting on someone to get guns taken away would be a misdemeanor.
