In the wake of a trio of deadly massacres, the studio is evaluating its strategy for the R-rated Blumhouse satire in which elites stalk "deplorables."
"Did anyone see what our rat#er-in-chief just did?" one character asks early in the screenplay for The Hunt, a Universal Pictures thriller set to open Sept. 27. Another responds: "At least The Hunt's coming up. Nothing better than going out to the Manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables."
In the aftermath of mass shootings within days of one another that shocked and traumatized the nation, Universal is re-evaluating its strategy for the certain-to-be-controversial satire. The violent, R-rated film from producer Jason Blum's Blumhouse follows a dozen MAGA types who wake up in a clearing and realize they are being stalked for sport by elite liberals.

But what are you proving you're innocent of? Or more aptly, what has the government assumed you're guilty of which results in the removal of your rights? Obviously it's not something criminal, because if it were, the person would end up in jail or with fines. So what exactly is the violation???
Due Process: a judicial requirement that enacted laws may not contain provisions that result in the unfair, arbitrary, or unreasonable treatment of an individual
Someone else arbitrarily deciding to investigate another person's actions because they might do something in the future is the antithesis of Due Process and a whole host of other Constitutional Protections. It doesn't matter if the person has their guns removed first or after; the very investigation is actually a violation of Due Process.
Also a detailed, consistent protocol for the "flagged" to assert their competency and retrieve their weapons in a swift manner should little or no threat be assessed.
Personally I feel like red flag laws are a slippery slope and are ripe for abuse. Nasty divorces and custody battles are the first thing that comes to mind so I'm sure you get my drift.
People with a mental health order aren't on this list because someone said they might hurt themselves or someone else. These are people who a judge has already determined they are a risk and/or have a conviction.
Tighten those laws, enshrine Due Process in those, don't add more laws.
So why are all of the red flag laws written to infringe on due process?
I've posted on your other thread from the start. I thought this one was more of a devil's advocate thing.
Then only reason people aren't on the NICS list that should be is because of bureaucratic F UPS or clerical errors, not because some law is keeping them off it.
Who pays for my lawyer? Who pays the court cases?
