MARK: IN THE WAKE OF THE EL PASO AND DAYTON MASS SHOOTINGS, CALLS FOR GUN CONTROL LEGISLATION ARE BEING HEARD ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND RIGHT HERE AT HOME. IN THE PAST GOVERNOR JOHN KASICH PUSHED FOR A SO CALLED RED FLAG LAW, AND NOW GOVERNOR MIKE DEWINE IS PUSHING FOR A SIMILAR PROPOSAL. BUT NOT IDENTICAL. MARK: NBC4’S ERIC HALPERIN IS AT THE STATEHOUSE WITH A CLOSER LOOK AT RED FLAG LAWS, AND WHAT THEY MEAN FOR YOU. . ERIC: DURING HIS ANNOUNCEMENT HERE AT THE STATEHOUSE YESTERDAY GOVERNOR DEWINE STOPPED NEVER CALLED HIS PROPOSAL A RED FLAG LAW. BUT GUN RIGHTS AND GUN CONTROL ADVOCATES SAY ESSENTIALLY, THAT’S WHAT IT IS. AS THE COMMUNITY CONTINUES TO RECOVER FROM THE MASS SHOOTING IN DAYTON, IDEAS ARE ONCE AGAIN BEING BROUGHT TO THE TABLE ABOUT HOW TO STOP GUN VIOLENCE. ONE OF THE IDEAS BEING DISCUSSED…WHAT GOVERNOR STEVE DEWINE IS CALLING SAFETY PROTECTION ORDERS. WHILE DEWINE NEVER CALLED IT A RED FLAG LAW, LEPD FIREARMS RANGE AND TRAINING OWNER ERIC DELBERT SAYS THAT’S PRETTY MUCH WHAT IT IS. ERIC DELBERT- LEPD FIREARMS, RANGE & TRAINING: “IT’S SOME ITERATION OF THAT. AND WE NEED TO HAVE THE DISCUSSIONS. WE APPLAUD HAVING THE DISCUSSION” HE SAYS MOST IN OHIO, GUN OWNERS OR NOT, PROBABLY DON’T KNOW WHAT RED FLAG LAWS ARE. THEY’RE IN PLACE IN MORE THAN A DOZEN STATES AROUND THE COUNTRY. THE DETAILS VARY BUT GENERALLY WHAT THEY DO IS ALLOW FAMILY, FRIENDS OR POLICE WORRIED ABOUT A GUN OWNER THEY KNOW, TO ASK FOR THE GUN TO BE CONFISCATED. A JUDGE CAN THEN ORDER THE GUN BE TEMPORARILY TAKEN AWAY IF THEY DETERMINE THE PERSON IS DANGEROUS TO THEMSELVES OR OTHERS. LAURA ROBERTSON-BOYD, MOMS DEMAND ACTION, COLUMBUS CHAPTER : “EVIDENCE SHOWS THAT IN STATES THAT HAVE ENACTED RED FLAG LAWS, THAT THERE HAS BEEN A DECREASE IN THE NUMBER OF DEATHS BY GUN.” LAURA ROBERTSON-BOYD IS WITH THE LOCAL CHAPTER OF MOMS DEMAND ACTION FOR GUN SENSE IN AMERICA. SHE WATCHED MONDAY AS THE GOVERNOR AID LAID OUT HIS 17 POINTS INCLUDING THE SAFETY PROTECTION ORDERS. GOVERNOR DEWINE SAYS HE GOT INPUT FROM SECOND AMENDMENT ADVOCATES FOR THE PLAN. UNDER HIS PROPOSAL THE PERSON IN QUESTION WOULD BE NOTIFIED OF A COURT HEARING THAT WOULD HAPPEN WITHIN THREE DAYS. THE JUDGE WOULD THEN DECIDE IF THEY CAN KEEP THEIR GUNS. DEWINE’S PROPOSAL ALSO INCLUDES ANOTHER HEARING WITHIN TWO WEEKS TO SEE IF THE ORDER SHOULD BE EXTENDED. LAURA ROBERTSON-BOYD, MOMS DEMAND ACTION, COLUMBUS CHAPTERR: SO THE GOVERNORS PROPOSED IT AND NOW WE LOOK TO OUR LEGISLATORS TO ENACT THESE COMMON SENSE REFORMS TO KEEP OHIOANS SAFE. ERIC DELBERT- LEPD FIREARMS, RANGE & TRAINING: IT NEEDS TO BE FACT BASED AND NEEDS TO HAVE DUE PROCESS. THAT’S BIG. I MEAN WHEN YOU HAVE THE GOVERNMENT COMING IN TO TAKE AWAY AN ITEM BECAUSE OF WHAT SOMEBODY ELSE SAID, THAT DUE PROCESS NEEDS TO BE AT THE TOP OF WHAT YOU INTEND TO PROTECT. ERIC: DELBERT ADDED OVERALL HE IS ENCOURAGED BY WHAT HE HEARD FROM THE GOVERNOR BUT STRESSED, AS THE CONVERSATIONS OF SAFETY PROTECTION ORDERS HAPPEN, HE WANTS PEOPLE LIKE HIMSELF TO HAVE A VOICE AT THE TABLE. LOCAL FOR YOU AT THE STATEHOUSE, I’M ERIC HALPERIN. DARLENE: THANKS, ERIC. DARLENE: WE’RE TRACKING SOME POP UP

    It means if someone doesn't like you they can say your a threat and take away your constitutional rights. Liberally biased judges will abuse there power and just use it to take guns from people whether there is a reason to or not. If you think this law doesn't favor one side of the spectrum your ignorant and niave

    Remember Swamp Monsters like Lyndsey Graham and Mom's Against Guns is literally lying to the people. It spews nothing but a violation of your fundamental constitutional rights.

    Dems paint around the target with their calls for gun control, pointing out tragic events of the last month or so and ignoring the fact that all homicides, including via gun, are about half what they were in the mid-1990s. They do the same with AGW "climate change" hypothesis, hand-wringing about fairly recent weather events and ignoring bigger picture historical climate data.

    In light of all the talk of more Red Flag laws I'm thinking that perhaps airline captains and military pilots should be subject to the same kind of standard. after all if a jumbo jet captain is pissed off he could take out 300 people. This appears to be the case with of Egypt Air flight 990, Japan Airlines flight 350,Royal Air 630,silkair flight 185, :LAM flight 470,Germanwings flight 9525 and most recently with Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.Sure they may ruin the careers of a few hundred top notch pilots who dedicated their lives to flying, but what the heck. They already allow airline pilots to take antidepressant pills which the Germanwings Flight 9525 was on., they include lexapro, Celexa, Zoloft and Prozac.. Maybe we should know if the pilot is depressed before we get on the plane.
