New Hampshire – -(AmmoLand.com)- Red Flag Bill Submitted in New Hampshire
Unfortunately, this is an “I told you so video” this is for those folks who have said, “It will never happen here!” or, “The President will never sign it!”
An Extreme Risk Protection Order Bill (ERPO) has been submitted in the gun friendly State of New Hampshire…the “Live Free or Die” state.
New Hampshire Democrat State Representative Jerry Knirk has cosponsored bill # 2019-0007, the Extreme Risk Protection Order / Red Flag Gun Confiscation Order.
This unconstitutional and illegal bill is riding the coattails of momentum that the red flag law has seen since the Parkland Shooting. You might recall that Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) has recently submitted the National Extreme Risk Protection and Violence Prevention Act (ERP) as Senate Bill 7 (2019-2020)
The Bill, S7, will be here: www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/senate-bill/7?q=%7B%22search%22%3A%5B%22Gun%22%5D%7D&r=2&s=2

Also, do not forget the President Donald Trump, via his Federal Commission on School Safety, urged states to adopt “extreme risk protection orders” that would remove firearms from individuals who are a danger to themselves and others.

It is imperative that gun owners and lovers of the Constitution make an effort to be heard. No longer can we be the “Silent Majority”. These unjust laws are spreading like wildfire and if they will be the biggest threat to the future of the 2nd Amendment as we know it!
There are already 13 states that have passed these laws that have only one intended goal: to circumvent the 2nd Amendment and confiscate guns from people who are then considered guilty until proven innocent. It is an outright attack on the law abiding gun owners around the country.
These ERPO or RED FLAG bills do absolutely nothing to target criminals, illegally owned guns, mental health nor will they do anything to save lives! What red flag bills do, however, is to violate a person’s:
1st Amendment Right to Free Speech, as a comment or even your social media can be used against you. All one needs is to have someone say they fear what a gun owner MIGHT do and they can seek an ERPO from a “judge”.
They also violate one’s 2nd Amendment Right to Keep and Bear Arms, obviously as their firearms are seized without cause.
- Your 4th Amendment Right to Protection from Unreasonable Searches and Seizures goes out the window.
- The 6th Amendment Right to a Speedy and Public Trial is lost as you aren’t made aware of the ERPO claim until the police show up to take your guns.
- You also aren’t afforded your 6th Amendment Right to an Impartial Jury as the complainant goes to a judge and the order is issued…without a jury.
- The 6th Amendment also guarantees your Right to Confront Your Accuser and to have Assistance of Counsel. You don’t get to know who filed the claim, never mind have your lawyer present!
- The 8th Amendment affords the Right to be free from Cruel and Unusual Punishments. Being jailed and having your firearms taken away, not because you have been found guilty of a crime, but simply because you own them lawfully and someone’s feeling were hurt.
- The Extreme Risk Protection Orders violate every facet of Due Process and are the most obviously unconstitutional bills and laws, in so many ways.
