Red flag laws...what could go wrong?

1. Red flag laws, sometimes called extreme risk protection order laws, allow a judge to issue an order that enables law enforcement to confiscate guns from individuals deemed a risk to themselves or others.
2. The Feds are looking to accelerate an already quickening adoption of these laws by enforcing them everywhere. Your state govt does not matter.
3. These laws are being written as “tattle tale” laws, allowing people who don’t like you to report you and have your rights stripped away...sounds a little like Twitter.
4. Other than “people telling on you” the main mechanism for firearm confiscation is “mental illness”.

NJ red flag laws REQUIRE firearm removal 👇👇👇👇
5. Vermont, by stark contrast, only grants the state AG or its office to request a protection order from a court:
6. What we have here is red flag laws taking away constitutional rights with no crime, no hearing, no trial, based on everything from
- AG requests
- Psychiatrist’s judgements
- Police Officers opinions
- neighbors who want you out of the HOA
6. What could possibly go wrong?

There is no lab test for mental illness. We will be relying on the diagnoses of the likes of Christin Blasey Ford “PHD”.

7. This is who will decide whether you are too crazy to have guns.

8. Didn’t read the article? Here’s a taste:
9. The indisputable truth is that people who hate you, have authority over you, think you’re crazy for voting the way you vote, and who are liberals WILL HAVE CONTROL OVER THESE RED FLAG LAWS.
10. It’s already happening. It’s already led to deaths of both the confiscators and confiscatees.
11. I don’t have any articles supporting this next point yet but you can BET YOUR ASS that google’s big data will be involved in identifying targets.
The same google that censors everyone, implements China’s social credit scheme, etc etc etc.
it’s a big tech wet dream.
12. So WHAT DO WE DO?!!!

I have 2 ideas:
The first is obvious. Make your voice heard NOW, do not bend, do not comply, do not turn over a single bullet.

The second is more strategic...
13. RED FLAG LAWS ARE ANTI LGBTQ!!!
In their own words:
Gays are over 100% more likely to be treated for mental illness than heterosexuals.
48 percent of Trans ppl report having considered suicide in the past 12 months...

14. The first step in winning a political argument when you’re on the right is accepting the reality that no one making the decisions gives a fuck about you....but they really really really care about gay stuff.
15. It’s not just gays.

Minorities are FAR less likely to be treated for mental illness...but just as likely to have mental illness. Doesn’t that mean they’re walking red flag time bombs? healthyplace.com/depression/art…
16. The only way we can win the political argument on red flag laws is by pointing out that it will Target LGBTQ and minorities in unfair ways.

No one in power cares about anything else.
17. Yes there are 2 6’s.
I would’ve finished this an hour ago if Twitter wasn’t taking 2 minutes to pull up my drafts folder every damn time.
