Another bill was re-introduced in the Senate by Marco Rubio (Rino-FL) that would do the same as Representative Susan Brooks’ HR 5717, enable the Attorney General to give taxpayer dollars to states that pass their own “Red Flag Gun Confiscation Laws.”

On Thursday, January 3rd, 2019, the 116th congress convened for the new legislative session. Immediately, newly seated Democrats, as well as members of the established party, began introducing bills to impeach the president, eliminate the electoral college and fund Planned Parenthood. While little else can be expected from the Democrats, another bill was re-introduced in the Senate by Marco Rubio (Rino-FL) that would do the same as Representative Susan Brooks’ HR 5717, enable the Attorney General to give taxpayer dollars to states that pass their own “Red Flag Gun Confiscation Laws.” This is at a time when we are being fed propaganda about the harmful government shutdown and the poor federal workers who are receiving no pay. The IRS has even announced that they won’t be issuing refunds as long as the government remains shut down. Yet, they are going to use our money, OUR MONEY, to illegally confiscate guns while denying people the constitutionally protected right of due process. Does anyone remember this? No state shall deprive any person of life, liberty or property without due process law? Except for when we are uncomfortable when a certain individual has a gun and we have no compelling evidence to prove they are going to commit a crime but we just feel that it would be better if we took his guns first and made him prove his innocence later. Right?

The Red Flag Laws are based on the notion that mentally ill people shouldn’t have firearms and that law enforcement and family members should have at their disposal, more tools to prevent mentally ill people from committing gun violence. There are many problems with this however, there are two that immediately come to mind.

The Red Flag Laws are based on the notion that mentally ill people shouldn’t have firearms and that law enforcement and family members should have at their disposal, more tools to prevent mentally ill people from committing gun violence. There are many problems with this however, there are two that immediately come to mind.

First, there are already laws and procedures in place which enable law enforcement or any other social agency to intervene in the case where an individual is demonstrating the capacity for violence. They simply have to be enforced. The new wave of Red Flag hysteria is the aftermath of the Parkland Florida school shooting where Nicholas Cruz murdered seventeen kids. The problem is that the entire system ignored all the warning signs. Not only that, 53 school districts across the nation, including Broward County were participating in an Obama era program that sought to keep minority children out of the criminal justice system. In fact, according to Real Clear Investigations, school districts who were hesitant to comply with the program were threatened with investigations and reduced funding. Furthermore, the Broward County school system superintendent worked with law enforcement to ensure that students committing crimes would not be arrested but put into a counseling program where they would explore the reasons for their anger. Fighting, assault and vandalism were all offenses that would lead to someone being referred to the program where as before, they may have been intercepted by police.
