In today’s Concealed Carry Report, Tim discussed how President Trump made the case against red flag laws:
Interestingly, just a few days ago President Trump (ironically and likely unintentionally) made a case against red flag laws.
According to Concealed Nation, after CNN’s Chris Cuomo “got into a nearly physical altercation” while out with his family, the president tweeted what he likely thought was a jab at Cuomo:
“Would Chris Cuomo be given a Red Flag for his recent rant? Filthy language and a total loss of control. He shouldn’t be allowed to have any weapon. He’s nuts!”
Dan Zimmerman points out the discrepancy: “Trump’s tweet — no doubt meant to tweak someone who’s been a consistent critic — was stupid and ill-considered. It’s also extremely valuable as the perfect example of why red flag laws, which the president says he supports, are such a bad idea.”
