    To justify the new law that permits them to do so. Just shows it necessary because of what could happen without it. After all, its the law (that is litigation) and the children . . ..

    Something done in the past is passe' even if it's still useful. When another tragedy occurs, "something must be done" means time for a new and stronger infringement, cause you know, not to be wasteful.

    Was he "violently" mentally ill? It's obvious he is mentally ill ... was he violent or suicidal? They claim he was a threat to others and himself. Where is the evidence of that?

    'Police would disobey orders to confiscate firearms! They'd never enable tyranny!' Until they get an order. Then it's back to 'just following orders.'

    I'm not making excuses for or condoning the new law and hope an injunction gets placed. But this story is not a big deal. This is not the first time Florida police have seized guns from an "unstable" person. What it is is great timing making for great headlines.

    This story is from 2013. Same Florida city. Same police chief as in the OP story.

    Because to have expelled him, given him a record and have him involuntarily committed would have negatively affected the school district's "improved" crime stats and the federal and state funds they received. Money is more important than truth.
