Welcome to my first post regarding the polls I am running on my website. Over the next few months I will be asking visitors to participate by answering questions about local issues and current events that affect them. For instance.. Red Flag Laws
I personally oppose Red Flag laws.. but I want to see how other Berkeley County residents feel about the subject. This poll seeks to that answer that question. Your participation is appreciated.
Although polls in general are notoriously known for their margin-of-error and do not produce exacting results, they can be very useful by providing a general understanding of how a specific population feels about a particular subject.
In addition to the poll below I have enabled comments at the bottom of this page to collect your response or questions. Don’t want to register and login.. use the website contact form.
A red flag law is a gun control law that permits police or family members to petition a state court to order the temporary removal of firearms from a person who may present a danger to others or themselves.
A judge makes the determination to issue the order based on statements and actions made by the gun owner in question. Refusal to comply with the order is punishable as a criminal offense. After a set time, the guns are returned to the person from whom they were seized unless another court hearing extends the period of confiscation. ..read more.
