Educate Others about the Dangers of Deadly “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation Laws

Virginia – -(AmmoLand.com)- BACKGROUND ON RED FLAG LAWS

For gun control to get passed into law, it requires duping people into thinking the proposed law is constitutional and will stop criminals.

Red Flag laws, also called Gun Violence Restraining Orders and Extreme Risk Protection Orders, are gun-confiscation laws disguised as “gun-violence prevention” laws that are being pushed hard at both the state and federal levels. Virginia Citizens Defense League expects to be fighting Red Flag bills in the Virginia General Assembly in 2019.

Red Flag laws are unconstitutional “prior restraint” laws that violate our basic civil rights. What's particularly alarming is that to take away a person's Second Amendment rights, such laws violate the protections found in the Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution! And all of that based on an unnamed person's secret allegation that someone else “might” do something dangerous to themselves or others in the future.

Laws are only supposed to authorize the State to apprehend and punish those who have committed an illegal act, not those who might, based on unsubstantiated allegations.

The person accused of being “dangerous” has no notice there is a problem until the police show up, pre-dawn, with guns drawn and confiscate the accused's firearms [we have already had on gun owner killed in this exact senario]. The accused is not given due process to defend himself or herself in court from the accusation for weeks or months after the confiscation. It is up to the accused to prove that he or she is not dangerous! Until such proof is provided to the Court's satisfaction, the guns are not returned. This could drag on for months, years, or indefinitely!

If a person is “too dangerous” to own a gun, then why is that person left walking around with the rest of us? Can’t that “dangerous” person still commit suicide or harm others if they have the opportunity?

The answer to both questions is that Red Flag laws are about confiscating guns, not saving lives.

In Maryland, which recently enacted such a law, two-thirds of the requests for confiscation were deemed frivolous. In other words, most of the applications that were denied were from people wanting to “get even” with someone else by making their lives miserable! But how many frivolous requests got through anyhow?

We do NOT want Red Flag laws in Virginia!

ACTION ITEM: WE *MUST* EDUCATE EVERYONE WE KNOW ON THE DANGERS OF RED FLAG LAWS!

Red Flag laws are a genuine and severe threat to our liberty. If we don't educate as many people as possible on the severity of the danger these laws pose, we could well end up with Red Flag laws either here in Virginia, or nationally.

Virginia Citizens Defense League has created a flyer that you can print out and distribute. We need to be doing this at gun shows and anywhere else that we can do so. Distribution should also include friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers.

Virginia Citizens Defense League does not believe in crying “Wolf!” and we're not.

    I hope those that make these calls that end up becoming “red flag” events realize that there might be retaliation by those accused – something the police won’t be around to protect them against.

    That’s one of the main issues!! The accused never gets to confront his/her accuser, it’s all kept secret in sealed documents!!! This is very deadly & the government knows this that’s why it set up this way!! If the accused was able to know exactly who is accusing them people would be reluctant to lie or get revenge on law abiding firearms owners!!

    What this article doesn’t address is that the orders will likely all be honored by judges wishing not to be wrong and have some accused die or shoot someone else. Sitting in the comfort of their home of office, who would risk being wrong and having something happen? Since there are no consequences for the false accuser, police action and judges decision, why not grant the order and sort it out in court at a later date. Biggest problem with this is that it will take getting an attorney (they’re not free, like making the accusation is) and seeing doctors… Read more »

    Substitute any other product for the word gun in these laws and you can see how ridiculous these laws are. Truth be told, it won’t be long until the government will be including other objects (knives, blunt objects, vehicles, etc.) if these laws continue to be passed and applied.

    The document has been pulled from scribd. More damned subversive influence. Who owns scribd? I wonder if it is part of some Soros, or Steyer, or Bezos conglomerate? Those in themselves, with the traitor Bloomberg and the Hollywood asses, are becoming a formidable, deeply evil funding source for much of the destruction of our nation. Soros in particular should be expelled, deported, after indictment for treason. I’d favor a firing squad, like his Nazi pals used. Ironic! . I wrote some lines about this Red Flag debacle, but the damned site somehow refreshed itself and ate it. Suffice it to… Read more »

    Gun grabbers are everywhere, in my state of gun friendly Missouri we have had 6 new bills filed in the state senate and 6 new laws filed in the state house of representatives filed by democrats which are in the minority, trying to limit our ability to protect ourselves.
    The democrats must be stopped everywhere.

    This is precisely why Americans desperately need to organize a 2nd American Revolution, take back our government so it’s for, by, and of WE the people;

    And then we need to strip the people behind this of their citizenship and either imprison or deport them. If released from prison at a ripe old age, then they get to finally be deported. Some may require the death penalty.

    Red Flag ‘laws’ are MODERN INTOLERABLE ACTS! So go join your state’s citizen militia, gear up, train up, and prepare for the day of reckoning!!

    The United States Constitution is the FOUNDATION and RULES for the states and federal government to be created and operated by. NO LAW may be in contravention, or in disharmony, with the U.S. Constitution. Those laws, like all gun control laws, are un-Constitutional and are to be ignored by Americans, as our Founding Fathers admonished us. But, cowardice by the American people and their lack of knowledge of the Constitution, causes Americans to believe the governments (city, state & federal) are the supreme powers and Americans have no recourse. Untrue. I hear Americans say “I will not give up my… Read more »

    This Bump Stock and High Capacity Ban is a bunch of crap! The Bump Stock does not even fall in the guidelines set by the ATF as an automatic weapon! It will lead to other bans! We The People elected Donald Trump to keep this type of ban from happening and now it is happening.

    There is already something in front of Congress to Ban home made 80% home builds.
