“Red Flags are all over the place these days. You see it a lot in dating advice. Little signs that this isn’t your soulmate, like a guy who orders salad or a woman who starts off with two Irish Car Bombs. In a much more serious iteration of this banner metaphor federal and state officials are looking to beef up our ‘red flag’ laws surrounding gun ownership. The two examples are related. But while the mixing and mingling 20-something has every right to swipe away the guy with no awesome neck tattoo, our government has to be more careful in looking for warning signs that someone should be deprived of a constitutional right.” (06/22/22)
