Count South Carolina State Representative Stewart Jones as another opponent of red flag laws.

In a piece for The Hill, Jones called out Republicans such as Dan Crenshaw and Lindsey Graham for their support of red flag gun confiscation orders.

After all, these two are some of the most prominent Republicans backing these proposals.

In Jones’ view, these laws are “unconstitutional and goes against the very fabric of our Republic, eroding both due process and a person’s natural right to self-defense.”

The South Carolina State Representative argues that the passage of red flag laws “will be another blow toward our liberty, much like the indefinite detention provisions of the 2012 NDAA, warrantless wiretapping of the PATRIOT Act, metadata collection by the NSA, and the expansion of the unconstitutional FISA courts.”

Unlike most short-sighted Republicans, Jones sees the potential for massive abuses further down the line.

People should also be concerned that red flag laws will be used to target political adversaries and used against anyone that government officials may disagree with. President Trump, of all people, should know what it feels like to be wrongly targeted, as both the FBI and FISA courts were used against him when he ran for office.

Jones does not believe the media sensationalism regarding expanded gun rights. He cited data from the FBI and the Bureau of Justice Statistics that show “violent crime rates have been in decline since the 1990s, despite rises in public perception of crime rates.”

He also argues that mainstream media outlets ignore “the countless incidents where a good person with a gun has prevented a tragedy, even though these positive incidents happen far more often than not.”
