Not a damn thing. But his private conversation was overheard by a nosy waitress that made a panicked assumption... instead of asking him or reporting to her boss who knew the man well, she then reported it to the police, and off to the races under the very broad Mass red flag law. She deserves to lose her job, and a lawsuit as well.I still don’t understand what he did wrong?
Unless 100% of Legislators are lawyers, yours is an inapt generalization that reflects a common dislike of lawyers. IMO it is the public that demands these types of laws... the sheeple want to feel protected. The state legislators want to confiscate guns anyway, so THEY give the sheeple what they want.Lawyers caused this problem and we can choose whether or not to continue to enrich them. I seriously doubt loggers or fisherman or 84 yo war veterans wrote the ERPO laws. Once one recognizes the enemy, everything else becomes academic. They aren't our friends and are increasingly enriching themselves from our pain and suffering through exponentially evolving complex and tortuous laws and regulations. Look at what they make you give. This war veteran had his life turned upside down because of some lawyers and a waitress. That's reality. Uncomfortable reality.
