“Second Amendment supporters, conservatives, and Trump backers are sounding warning alarms that Republicans in Congress, the party that has traditionally stood up for Americans’ right to keep and bear arms, are preparing to cave on demands from Left-wing Democrats to enact a federal “red-flag” law following the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton…
Red flag laws empower the state to label someone as “dangerous” based solely on the recommendation of a friend, family member, or other acquaintance. The person being charged does not know they’ve been charged because they are absent from the court proceedings. Most often they only find out after police arrive at their place of residence, sometimes with guns drawn during pre-dawn raids, to confiscate their otherwise legally owned guns.
Known as “Extreme Risk Protection Orders,” red flag laws are insulting to the Constitution in a number of ways, writes Philip Van Cleave in a separate Ammoland piece. In addition to injuring the Second Amendment’s ‘infringement’ clause, red flag laws also violate the Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Amendments to the Constitution as well — depriving someone of their property without due process, while essentially finding them guilty of something without a trial and without ever being charged or convicted.
This is the legislation that a growing number of Republicans — and, perhaps, the president — are now supporting. (Related: Analysis: Are Republicans really set to cave on gun control and ‘red flag laws?’ Don’t be so sure.)…”
You know I just thought of something. This is a good way to see which congressmen be it democrat or republican wants to curtail the second amendment. With this we will know who is either evil or a useful idiot which is even worse than being evil.
