Police in Fort Worth, Texas, say a mass shooting may have been averted Tuesday after a man alerted authorities to say his 27-year-old son wanted to buy weapons and go on a rampage.

"He wanted to kill many people. He wanted to do something that was very similar that took place in the Midland-Odessa area [Aug. 31] and he basically wanted to mimic that," Forth Worth Police Officer Buddy Calzada told KXAS-TV.

Police said they were familiar with the man and had received calls about him due to his mental health issues before. When the man's father called, he told authorities his son was out attempting to buy weapons, and the father worried he might try to carry out a mass shooting.

So.... we don't need red flag laws. We need good people to not have rose-tinted glasses on in regards to family.

And while I only skimmed, it looks like we are able to avert a mass shooting without infringing on anyone's rights.
