President Trump has a plan for dealing with armed people who could be dangerous: Confiscate the guns first and ask questions in court later.
On Wednesday, the president declared that he supports removing guns from individuals who could pose a threat to themselves or others, even if it violates their rights to due process.
“I like taking the guns early, like in this crazy man’s case that just took place in Florida … to go to court would have taken a long time,” Trump explained during a meeting with lawmakers to discuss school safety and gun violence.
“Take the guns first,” he said. “Go through due process second.”
