  • How red flag laws work in daily practice

    An 84 year old veteran has lost his job, had his gun licenses taken away and his guns confiscated. All it took was for someone to hear an incomplete fragment of a conversation and turn him in. In other words, his constitutional rights were violated over nothing.

    This is the plan to confiscate guns. It takes no evidence at all for a law abiding citizen to have their rights taken away by an unconstitutional law.

    There’s no reason for Americans to fret over “red flag” laws that give sweeping gun confiscation powers to local governments, right? After all, if you’re not a criminal, what’s the problem?
    At least that’s the general response voiced by many on the left whenever gun owners speak up. But a disturbing incident in Massachusetts is raising hard questions about those firearms seizure laws, especially when it comes to due process.
    According to LifeZette and The Martha’s Vineyard Times, an 84-year-old veteran had his legally owned firearms confiscated by local police after a waitress misheard part of a conversation between him and a friend.
    To make matters worse, the vet was also reportedly fired from his position as a school crossing guard, which he used to keep busy after the death of his wife.
    “Stephen Nichols of Tisbury — in the Martha’s Vineyard area of Massachusetts — got the job as a crossing guard because he loves kids,” LifeZette reported. “After his wife passed away, he reportedly needed something to occupy his time and his heart.”

    Too many Red Flag bills are written in the Trump philosophy:

    WASHINGTON — President Trump said Wednesday he favors taking guns away from people who might commit violence before going through legal due process in the courts, one of many startling comments he made in a rambling White House meeting designed to hash out school safety legislation with a bipartisan group of lawmakers.

    "I like taking guns away early," Trump said. "Take the guns first, go through due process second."

      LOL. Your talking points are failing. What you're saying is that the Democrats in Democrat controlled state are cooperating with Trump. Do you even begin to see how ridiculous your post is?
