Trump campaign adviser Brad Parscale’s guns may be taken away after drunken arrest
Fort Lauderdale police are moving to take away Trump campaign adviser Brad Parscale’s guns after his arrest Sunday, according to a report.
Pascale, 44, had 10 guns in his $2.4 million waterfront home when he barricaded himself in the house with a loaded gun, prompting his wife to run to safety and have a neighbor dial 911 to report a possible suicide.
Cops recovered two shotguns, two rifles, a .22-caliber revolver and five other handguns, according to reports.
Now, police said they’ll file to take Parscale’s weapons under Florida’s Red Flag Law, which was enacted following the 2018 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, the Miami Herald reported.
“Our threat response unit detectives are in the process of submitting this petition,” Fort Lauderdale police Sgt. DeAnna Greenlaw told the outlet.
The law permits cops or relatives to confiscate weapons if the owner could present a danger to themselves or others.
Police have to file a petition with the court to confiscate the weapons, which the department said it will do.
Parscale was involuntarily hospitalized under the state’s Baker and Marchman acts.
