President Trump on Wednesday voiced support for confiscating guns from certain individuals deemed to be dangerous, even if it violates due process rights.
“I like taking the guns early, like in this crazy man’s case that just took place in Florida … to go to court would have taken a long time,” Trump said at a meeting with lawmakers on school safety and gun violence.
“Take the guns first, go through due process second,” Trump said.
While I agree that nutcases shouldn’t have guns you cannot, absolutely cannot, bypass due process.
It sets a precedence that can be seriously abused in other situations that can and will be exploited whenever Trump or any president following him feels like it.
