WEB Notes: Where do we draw the line then? Whether this guy was a fool with a gun remains to be seen, there are always two sides to every story. The fact of the matter is we do not need special laws to take away someone’s firearm. Did the man commit a crime or not?

The Seattle Police Department has reportedly seized a man’s firearm under a new state law that permits gun confiscation using a so-called “extreme risk protection order.” It’s the first time that the new law, intended to keep guns out of the hands of people who may be a risk to themselves or others, has resulted in a forced gun seizure in the state.

The unidentified man forced to surrender his guns is accused by neighbors of intimidating people by staring them down with a gun holstered on his person, according to KATU. A neighbor who knew the suspect alleged the man was “roaming the hallways with a .25-caliber automatic,” which scared some residents.
