Plain Talk With Rob Port


Jan 17, 2019

Should the government be able to take a person's guns because a court finds you dangerous? Is that a reasonable protection for public safety, or something amounting to pre-crime? Denying a person their civil rights based on what they might do?

Rep. Karla Rose Hanson, a Democrat from Fargo and sponsor of so-called "red flag" legislation, proposes giving the government that authority. She talks with Rob about it.

Also, Rob discusses some on-going headaches with Marsy's Law, and a loophole in state law which allows reserve law enforcement officers to operate like their fully trained and certified counterparts without the certification and training.
