the “alleged” criminal had already demonstrated he was a danger to the father and others. It was an ongoing threat. He robbed a store in broad daylight, not a rational act. He could easily have decided to eliminate witnesses.
So, if he committed an irrational act I suppose the defense will be able to plea deal him out on a temporary insanity deal. But then, since he will have the “insanity” thing in his “permanent record”, he’ll be “prevented” from ever obtaining another firearm. Isn’t that what we’re being promised by the king and his court? LOL!
