1.) #RedFlagLaws, yes they violate the Constitution, let me show you the ways.

#2A - It never ceases to amaze me how the phrase, “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed”, simply cannot be understood by such a large swath of the American people.
2.) I understand there are folks who don’t like the #2A , but pretending it’s not there or that it says something it doesn’t is lazy, arrogant, and tyrannical.
3.) #4A - We all have a right to be secure, in both our homes and our property, and against unreasonable search and seizure. But how secure are you when someone can make an unfounded claim and your house is entered and your property seized?
4.) of course, no human being has ever lied to get back at someone they’re mad at, right? I mean, no one in a nasty divorce or custody battle would say a spouse is a danger out of spite, would they?
5.) There’s never been a situation where someone has falsely called 911, saying someone is threatening because they didn’t like that they possessed a firearm? Has anybody ever called the police because they don’t like what a neighbor is doing even though it is perfectly legal?
6.) If you believe that, I have swamp land at the 4 corners I will sell you. What happens when the government no longer needs reasonable cause to search and seize? If this right can be denied for gun-related accusations, what about fertilizer (you could be making a bomb)?
7.) #5A - You not only have a right to your property, but the government cannot take it without “due process of law”. Notice, it’s not just the process of law, but due process. That means “that which law or justice requires to be paid or done“.
8.) Is it justice taking someone’s property without proof of their bad actions? Or is it right to punish someone for something they have not, and may not, do? If all it takes is an accusation, then why stop at taking property?
9.) How long before an accusation without proof is enough to put you in jail, because you might be a danger to society?
10.) #14A - If you are a citizen of the United States, states are not allowed to abridge your rights or your privileges and immunities. Yet states are passing laws that do so, and I understand Congress is considering one that will directly abridge ....
11.) ....the assumption of innocent until proven guilty. With red flag laws, you are assumed guilty because someone “believes” you might be dangerous. The government is supposed to prove its case before punishing someone, and it’s supposed to prove we’re guilty before taking...
12.) our property and our liberty as well. We’re to have the same protections under the law as everyone else. If the government can take your home without proving you’re guilty, why can’t they take your gun? If they can’t take your car without proof...
13.) why can they take your best tool for self-defense? If you can be declared a second-class citizen or if your rights can be declared null and void just because you exercise one of them, what is to stop the government from declaring all of them null and void?
14.) What if they passed laws that prevented you from exercising your right to vote because someone didn’t like the way you used it? And before you think this is impossible , remember that Jim Crow laws were passed not only because blacks were voting...
15.) ...but because they were voting against the established party.

Red flag laws are nothing more than an emotional reaction to an irrational fear of people who own firearms. They are unconstitutional, and by that fact, illegal.
16.) Even worse, they are a giant step away from liberty and freedom toward tyranny and despotism. If anyone can take away any of your rights by simple accusation, how long before we become a nation of informants, using that power to destroy the lives of others? /FINISH
