Red Flag Laws

Politicians told us to put up plastic signs that said, “no guns allowed”. The results were horrible. Instead of making us safer these “gun-free” zones left crowds of unarmed people at the mercy of mass murderers. Gun-control politicians aren’t criticized when their policies fail. Rather than fix their mistakes, they invent a new gun-control law. Criminals don’t follow gun laws, so these new laws are no more effective than the last ones. We’re rightfully disturbed when innocent people are slaughtered. Rather than fix their mistakes, Democrat politicians offered up human sacrifices, so we’ll feel safer.

In the wake of the recent wave of violence, Democrats and RINOs joined hands to pass a law that includes red flag “protection” or what they refer to as a common sense means to address gun violence by disarming people who allegedly present a danger to themselves or others.

The right to keep and bear arms is a sacred, fundamental right protected by the 2nd Amendment. Poorly crafted red-flag laws pose a serious threat to our exercise of this right. And that is especially true when it comes to federal red flag laws. D.C. is not practically equipped or constitutionally empowered to handle matters of state or local law enforcement. Offering states grants to set up their own red flag laws based on guidelines deemed acceptable by bureaucrats more interesting in confiscating guns than solving problems, is not going to stop the violence.

Congress lacks the authority under the enumerated powers of the federal government in the Constitution. Article I, Sec. 8 grants Congress the power to coin money, to regulate commerce, to declare war, to raise and maintain armed forces, and to establish a Post Office. Nowhere is the right to regulate firearms mentioned. Of course, not having a constitutional right to do something never slowed Congress down.

Red Flag laws violate the Constitution’s due process. Seizing property of individuals who have not been convicted of a crime violates that provision. Again, that has never slowed the government down. The IRS, aka, the “American Gestapo” has been violating that right for decades.

If the rash of mass shootings is to be stopped, punishing law-abiding citizens and ignoring constitutional law is NOT the answer. The real problem in the violence is in how degraded our culture has become, how inept parents have become, how family units have been degraded step-by-step by the left, as well as the degradation of common-sense morality.

When dangerous bills like this “gun safety” bill become law, it helps the American Marxists achieve their incrementalistic agenda to destroy our constitutional Republic the Founders so wisely and judicially created.

The politicians who give lip service to diversity want to make it a crime to think, feel, and act differently than the mob. Gun owners are the first sacrifice.
