At last week’s meeting of the Public Safety Committee of the Yates County Legislature, District Attorney Todd Casella shared concerns about the newly enacted state Red Flag law, particularly; the risks law enforcement will face in trying to carry out court orders to seize firearms, the liability the county will face in possible lawsuits, and the logistical matter of storing seized weapons.

The essence of the law will permit family members, teachers, school administrators, and prosecutors to seek court orders to seize guns, according to information from Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s statement during the Feb. 25 signing of the law.

“It seems this is another law that’s not well thought out,” said Casella.

The U. S. Constitution provides: "No person deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.

Stripeseven - EXACLY!

Unless you enshrine due process guarantees in the text of the law itself, it will be unacceptable.

Due process means an adversarial hearing wherein the respondent can face his/her accusers, cross examine witnesses, and present witnesses and evidence on his/her behalf.

The problem with these laws is that they use ex parte hearings where the respondent often isn't even notified that one is taking place. That is an egregious circumvention of the commands in the 4th, 5th, 6th and 14th Amendments.

You can't take his liberty (i.e. his natural right to bear arms) or his property (i.e. his firearms) without first having an adversarial hearing and getting a probable cause ruling based upon all the evidence.

The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of the blessings. The inherent blessing of socialism is the equal sharing of misery. — WINSTON CHURCHILL
