      I didn’t think of it that way, but you never know. Trump and Amash could be making the same point.

      Ok, I'm confused by that statement. Tweets don't appear on my my screen but I think I located it by the number. How are they making the same point?

      Depending on how much credit you give the drunken monkey, he could be both insulting Cuomo, and pointing out that red flag laws could easily be applied to anybody (abused), both at the same time. A twofer.

      Would Chris Cuomo be given a Red Flag for his recent rant? Filthy language and a total loss of control. He shouldn’t be allowed to have any weapon. He’s nuts!

      Well, I had a long day and just got settled. Is there some new reason to think Trump is playing a game with his stated support of red flag laws etc.?

      So many Trump supporters who consider themselves gun rights supporters will follow their guttural partisan instinct and side with Trump on this and viciously attack Amash for his betrayal. I'll wait and see if any of this website's new anti-libertarian majority joins in.

      No doubt he is doing both of those things. But in the eyes of the drunken monkey, the ability to abuse red flag laws is a reason he's for them.

      You never know. That is the essence of the drunken monkey technique.

      In reality, he will sign anything the Congress sends to him, so it’s really all up to McConnell.

      He said he would support one with "due process" but there is no such thing as a Red Flag law with due process.

      I'm hoping it was the pain medication talking.
