A group of fourteen Senate Republicans betrayed the country by signing off on the left’s latest gun control bill. The legislation, whose language has not been released, will at the very least deprive young Americans of the right to purchase a firearm. And that’s just for starters.
Another major power grab coming from Biden and the left (and some Republicans) are so-called “red flag” law. Passed in several states already, these laws give the government the power to take away your guns, even if you haven’t committed a crime. Without a warrant, without due process, they can enter your home and disarm you.
All because someone claims you are a “danger,” without evidence.
But are Americans on board with this kind of move? A recent survey reveals, hell no.
Convention of States Action, a grassroots movement of about 2.4 million supporters to restore self-governance in America, conducted a new national survey in partnership with the polling firm The Trafalgar Group, which asked more than 1,000 likely 2022 election voters about such laws that the Democrats — and, yes, even some Republicans — are working to advance in the Senate…
The survey asked respondents whether or not they believe that “red flag” gun control laws would cause a slippery slope for government and law enforcement to abuse their authority by disarming political opponents and/or citizens who disagree with them.
Survey results showed that 72.2 percent of Republicans, 52.3 percent of independents, and 16.4 percent of Democrats believe the powers that be would potentially abuse those laws. [Source: Daily Wire]
The majority of Americans polled believed that “red flag” laws would easily be abused by government officials to rob citizens of their rights, especially those who disagreed with their politics.
That is because, red flag laws will be abused by government officials, law enforcement, and judges. Government isn’t in the business of not expanding its power. You give the government an inch, it will take a mile… and all the guns in your house.
Red flag laws are the clearest violation of our constitutional rights we’ve seen in a long time. Not only do they infringe on the basic purposes of the Second Amendment, but they also remove due process, a citizen’s right to have a day in court, and the edict “innocent until proven guilty.”
These laws literally brand a person guilty. They cannot get their firearms back until they can prove they are not a danger.
That is the opposite of what our founding fathers wanted. That’s the kind of tyranny that was rampant in Europe and around the world. Corrupt government stomping all over the public. Of course, they would have said it was for the people’s own good. But it never was.
For any politician to push laws that take away our rights is un-American and criminal. But for Republicans to be on board with this is unacceptable. Any GOP members of Congress who give up an inch of ground over this issue are no Republicans at all.
