Maryland Redflag Gun Law

A lot of coverage lately about Maryland's red flag gun law. It certainly sounds like the law is being applied and (IMHO) working largely as planned. Obviously the fear would be that officials would abuse the statute and that gun owners would be stripped of the second amendment rights with little or no cause.
And in my last link we have a case of the subject of one of these orders answering the door gun in hand and he ended up dead.

According to police, two officers serving a new Extreme Risk Protective Order (Red Flag Law), a Maryland protective order to remove guns from a household, shot and killed the man listed on that order.

“Under the law, family, police, mental health professionals can all ask for the protective orders to remove weapons,” said Sgt. Jacklyn David, with Anne Arundel County Police.
That man was identified as Gary J. Willis of same address.
Officials said Willis answered the door while holding a handgun.
Willis then placed the gun next to the door.
When officers began to serve him the order, Willis became irate and grabbed his gun.
One of the officers tried to take the gun from Willis, but instead Willis fired the gun.
The second officer fired a gun, striking Willis. He died at the scene.
