It does no good to imprison those whom someone in government believes might become violent (i.e., red flag laws) if society does not fix the underlying problems that drive people to violence and insanity. There are not enough prisons or police. That is a recipe for violent revolution followed by chaos and anarchy.
Far better, cheaper, and more effective to jail the oligarchs and power-mad politicians who are designing such violence-inducing schemes like identity politics, “white nationalism” and “white supremecy” propaganda, equal outcomes, transgenderism, regime change wars, legalized prostitution, single payor healthcare, Antifa, migrant caravans and open borders, sanctuary cities and campuses, Agenda 21 and 2030, human-caused global warming, spying on all people in the U.S., targetting political opposition by the IRS, running guns to Mexican drug cartels and running surface-to-air missiles from Libya to radical islamists in Syria, bombing and killing innocent people for years by drones and then covering it up… murdering millions of babies by abortion, pedophile islands, enslaving tens of millions to welfare and unpayable debt incurred by out of control government spending, fiat currency. This list could go on.
All of the above and more is brought to you by so-called “progressives,” Democrats and Republicans-in-name-only. Why would anyone get upset? /s
