In the wake of deadly shootings this year, gun control activists won’t stop pushing their anti-Second Amendment narrative through every possible media and political outlet available. This is, of course, to be expected.
The real danger lies in that many on the “center right” of the political spectrum are falling for the false-flag operation of red flag laws.
Many Republicans and supposedly conservative sources have fallen to the unfortunate line that they, of course, support the Second Amendment but “something must be done.” Even Republican lawmakers are falling for and repeating the horrible idea of “red flag” gun confiscation orders.
Plain and simple: red flag gun laws are NOT a constitutional option.
They are also not a proven option that would prevent future shootings. Red flag laws are a design created by gun control advocates, and they would be used as fuel to light the fire of comprehensive gun control. Conservatives and republicans should take note.
Time and again laws already on the books could have or should have been used to stop murders from obtaining weapons. From the Sandy Hook shooting to Parkland, Florida, to El Paso and Dayton, law enforcement either had the tools and did not use them to stop these shooters early or the background system worked and these individuals were prevented from legally purchasing a firearm.
It’s sad that many Republicans are even entertaining this unconstitutional, ineffective idea. Red flag laws are an acceleration of taking away a citizen’s constitutional rights with very little if any due process. Conservatives — don’t be fooled! Even if supposedly right-wing organizations produce documents supporting red flag laws or magazine bans, you know that these solutions serve no purpose but to violate the rights of law abiding citizens.
Republicans in office need to know that they will pay a horrendous price if they fall for these false “common sense” initiatives and support Nancy Pelosi’s gun control agenda.
The abuse of our Second Amendment rights will quickly lead to an abuse of our First Amendment rights as well.
