    Judge Nap on Red Flag laws

    Judge Napolitano has written several good articles on the 2A recently. This is his most recent in Town Hall:

    In 2008, Justice Antonin Scalia wrote for the Supreme Court that the right to keep and bear arms in the home is an individual pre-political right. Due process demands that this level of right -- we are not talking about the privilege of driving a car on a government street -- can only be taken away after a jury conviction or a guilty plea to a felony.

    The "might happen" standard of "red flag" laws violates this basic principle. The same Supreme Court case also reflects the Kentucky long gun lesson. The people are entitled to own and possess the same arms as the government; for the same reason as the colonists did -- to fight off tyrants should they seize liberty or property.
