Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, November 19, 2019

Less than two weeks before her death, Valdivia messaged her a picture of a handgun. More than half a dozen cans of beer and a bottle of alcohol were in the background of the image. "This threat really scared me and I can no longer handle his abuse and harassment," she said in court filings. The restraining order was granted Friday. The next morning, Valdivia showed up at Rosario's home and shot her, their four children and himself, police said. Only their 9-year-old son, Ezekiel Valdivia, survived. He remains in critical condition in a hospital.

Awful. Any decent human being knows we need to do something.

There's a silver lining here: this will make gracie very happy though.

Horrible...

Too bad us decent human beings can't agree on what "something" is.

It would seem the reasonable for the restraining order ("image with handgun etc") would be enough to take his weapons.

To be clear, I don't mind people having weapons, just if you brandish it, without cause ... you lose it. Maybe you can go and buy more, but we will take the one you flaunt and all your ammo.

Without cause?
This guy brandished it with the cause of threatening his estranged wife.

Just the weapon you brandish?
Why pick on the gun when the problem is the possessor?

If you make a threat with a gun all your weapons and ammo should be confiscated until your trial or psych evaluation is completed.

Same goes for other weapons.
