Fact is, we should have a way to stop potentially dangerous people when they are doing everything but saying, At 2 tomorrow I’m gonna shoot up this school and here’s my gun I’m gonna use.

I would definitely not allow “anonymous” red flags. Otherwise it would just become a new form of “swatting”.
It is secret. Check into any real red flag case. They are handled in family court and completely private. That’s why you can’t see all the assets of your neighbors going through divorce. Family court proceedings are closed to the public.
Read articles on the Gary Willis case, the guy killed by the cops in MD doing a red flag call.

If Trump can’t put away at least some of the worst of our domestic enemies, he and his family and anyone who expresses support for him will be attacked the rest of our lives.
