Again, a medium that many believe to be staunchly anti-gun reports fairly on the plight of a Connecticut man whose gun collection was confiscated because he gave voice to his inner turmoil.
This was NOT a case of a deeply troubled and potentially violent person (like the Parkland, Fla., shooter) whose views and stated objectives should indeed be investigated. And bear in mind that the man whose guns were seized had gone through the honest effort to register them.
Even more frightening to me are President Trump's flip-flops on the Second Amendment. He weaves a confusing view on gun policy, even going so far as to say it's better to seize guns now and let courts decide later whether the action was warranted.
The president has retracted some of his other statements that shocked his fellow Republicans and the NRA. But I have yet to see a clarification of this disturbing pronouncement.
