    "but, there needs to be some guarantees that it's all done methodically and logically, without political interference."

    I don't think that's possible.

    If true, very poor idea. Computers are incredibly good at following explicit instructions (code) correctly every time. Unfortunately humans and the things they say vary immensely based on frame of mind and mood and computers have no way of interpreting variables such as that with current technology and are left to simply provide results based upon literal interpretations of the spoken words. Until technology evolves far more than it is now, this cannot work and will lead to more false flags and more infringement on the rights of law abiding citizens than not. Piss poor idea.

    Without individual and unbiased human analysis of every single person flagged, this cannot work. You are also correct that this has the potential for an astronomical amount of abuse by the people coding the applications that issue those flags. At the current state technology is in, this is about as far from a viable solution as can be.

    The news story is just saying someone is running the idea across the desk.

    No real hint as to what the president is considering or not considering. He does tend to play with his enemies before eating their lunch :)

    Vote Trump 2020!

    I’ll be using a really expensive laptop for target practice if this passes.

    Trump does NOT need any assistance putting out his contradictory information aka. disinformation. Just browse all his tweets for any given topic.

    I bet his MAGA really stands for Mexican Always Get Across! He is rounding them up so he can pardon them and provide citizenship. They will be so grateful that he and Republicans will get their votes return. :devildance::elephant::waving:

    If he gets serious about this proposal and starts actually drawing it up, he'll immediately lose my support. There is NO WAY I would vote for him if he backed this. Or an AWB. Or a Magazine ban. Or restrictions on ammo.

    This stuff seems like it is becoming more and more frequent from him. I have a bad feeling about his 2nd term.

    These days to me, everything is fake news until *I* can prove otherwise.

    I feel the same way.

    I'll only vote for him in 2020 IF he doesn't implement the red flag law or any other new gun control.

    Along the line of a famous quote regarding the Apollo 13 deal, I say: keeping your mouths shut is not an option.

    It doesn't matter what you believe, because it is true.


    You can go around saying the moon landing never happened, but that doesn't change the fact that it did. :rolleyes:

    People who jump at every rumor, tweet, Fake News article, Deep State smear job, etc., are going to have a very bumpy ride over the next 15 months. Make that the next 63 months. You're going to hear all kinds of crap...literally the entire national media is looking 24/7 for ways to damage Trump with his supporters and reduce their number. They'll mislead, lie, and invent controversy daily. Add in his often ill-considered tweets, where he's basically thinking out loud without a filter, and then rethinks it all the very next day, and between the two you can spend all your time wrapped around one axle or another. If something's real, you'll have plenty of time to react, and plenty of time to make your support, or your outrage, known. JMHO.

    I can tell you what I'm NOT going to vote for: Gun Control.

    If you want to though....well, hey, at least you're okay with gun control, as long as it's Trump doing it.
