I finally gave myself the time to sit and read the text of the TAPS act. From what I have seen in Gun Right Social Media, it is the official Federal Red Flag law and if you do not want it burn to the ground, you are a traitor and should be hanged.
But as I always try to remind people READ THE BILL FIRST!.
Ane what was my take on this bill: basically to select 24 people from different agencies to spend a year talking about threats and then issue a report and recommendations. Wash, Rinse, Repeat every year after that.
I see it as a good thing (other than the taxpayer’s money being wasted) as it plugs the WE MUST DO SOMETHING NOW! hole at the Federal level and it may help states to stop rushing to pass their own laws wit nasty unintended consequences. Committees can be influenced into doing the right thing or produce an useless product.
This is a toughie: even though I wish this Committee wasn’t needed, but if it stops the Gun Control side from beating this particular drum to death and against us, then I am for it.
