Red flag laws and why they are flawed

In the great State of Texas, where the Second Amendment is not just a constitutional right but a way of life, women are leading the charge in self-defense. From July 29 to August 12, at least 13 courageous women across the nation, including in Texas, have exercised their God-given right to bear arms to fend off assailants.

In Texas, where gun ownership is a proud tradition, two women recently demonstrated the power of self-reliance and personal responsibility. One woman, faced with a violent ex-boyfriend, grabbed a pistol from her car’s console and fired a shot, stopping him in his tracks. Another Texas woman, threatened by her partner, pulled a gun from her purse and defended herself with decisive action.

These Texas cases are not isolated incidents but a reflection of a broader national trend that resonates with the core values of the Lone Star State. The right to keep and bear arms is not just a legal provision; it’s a fundamental part of Texas culture, empowering women and all citizens to take control of their safety.

 2020 saw a record year for gun sales, with 23 million firearms sold. Texas was at the forefront of this movement. Women, in particular, have embraced gun ownership, with half of firearm customers being women between 2019 and 2021. In Texas, where the right to self-defense is paramount, this trend is a testament to the enduring importance of the Second Amendment.

These stories of brave Texas women are a salute to the enduring legacy of gun rights in Texas. They are a reminder that the right to bear arms is not just a constitutional provision but a vital part of the Texas way of life. In a world where threats can be around any corner, Texas stands as a beacon of self-reliance, personal responsibility, and the unbreakable spirit of freedom.

    I agree with everything stated in this piece, but it does NOT match the assertion about Red Flag Laws in the title.
    IMO most/many red flag laws are flawed, primarily related to due process, but the concept is NOT inherently flawed. In TX I met all the requirements to obtain a CHL. IMO, those requirements should continue to hold throughout one’s own of a firearm. If one fails to continue to meet said requirements, his authority to carry or even possess a firearm should be relinquished.
