“Red Flag” Laws are Killing Innocent Americans

When Democrats talk about taking guns away from Americans, this is going to be the conclusion.

A 61-year-old man is dead after he was shot by an officer trying to enforce Maryland’s new ‘red flag’ law in Ferndale Monday morning.

Anne Arundel County Police confirmed the police-involved shooting happened in the 100 block of Linwood Avenue around 5:17 a.m.

According to police, two officers serving a new Extreme Risk Protective Order (Red Flag Law), a Maryland protective order to remove guns from a household, shot and killed the man listed on that order.

“Under the law, family, police, mental health professionals can all ask for the protective orders to remove weapons,” said Sgt. Jacklyn David, with Anne Arundel County Police.

That man was identified as Gary J. Willis of same address.

Officials said Willis answered the door while holding a handgun.

Willis then placed the gun next to the door.

When officers began to serve him the order, Willis became irate and grabbed his gun.

One of the officers tried to take the gun from Willis, but instead Willis fired the gun.

The second officer fired a gun, striking Willis. He died at the scene.

No police officers were injured and others inside the house were unharmed.

Police continue to investigate the shooting. At this time it’s not clear who called police to alert them about Willis.

Anne Arundel County Police have only had nine “red flag” calls so far.

  1. Les…they are NOT brain dead. That claim would assume ignorance on their parts. They are EVIL, to the max! When a number of them are no longer useful to the “CAUSE”, THEY will be eliminated, also1

  2. Seems like the guy who was killed was truly a threat to anyone who approached him. This is exactly why red flag laws are in place. Better this guy shot than some innocent person in the wrong place at the wrong time. How did a guy like this get weapons in the first place?
