Wisconsin – -(AmmoLand.com)- It is 5:32 am.
Gary Willis, of Ferndale, Maryland answers a knock at his door. It is to be the last thing he will ever do. Seconds later, gunfire erupts as the police gun Willis down in cold blood in his own home.
Mr. Willis would become the first victim of his state’s new “red-flag” gun law.
Now for the bad news: It’s coming to Wisconsin. They’re calling it “gun control that even conservatives can support.”
But the truth is, conceding our gun rights doesn’t make the gun grabbers go away, it only emboldens them.
To quote Winston Churchill, “An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.”
The idea behind these dangerous new gun laws is that someone reports you, or “red flags” you to the government. A secret court (that you are not allowed to attend or have legal representation at) decides if you’re a “threat” and issues a gun confiscation order.
Just like that your gun rights are gone … no due process, no presumption of innocence, no legal defense.
Of course, when the police come to serve you and take your guns, they’re on high alert because they already believe you to be a threat … and they know you have guns.
And when you answer the door and try to assert your rights, or simply question what is happening, you get both barrels … literally. All it takes is for a nosy neighbor or disgruntled ex-spouse to call you in. Even if someone completely lies about you, there’s no due process for you to refute the allegations. It’s just like in a despotic Third World dictatorship where the secret police go around framing people and destroying lives to get themselves ahead.
Now, 12 states have already passed red-flag gun laws and Wisconsin will be taking up the issue this session.
The situation is extremely dangerous. Not only are both parties jumping on this bandwagon in an attempt to appear reasonable, but we can’t count on the institutional gun lobby to strictly oppose it, either.
That’s why I need to know if you’ll stand with me and WGO to OPPOSE red-flag gun laws in Wisconsin.
Will you sign the online petition for Wisconsin legislators? Will you consider a donation to WGO so we have the resources to fight this attack on liberty?
P.S.- Wisconsin legislators are being pressured to introduce so-called red-flag gun laws. If passed, an ex-spouse could simply call the authorities to report you, and you lose your guns. One gun owner in Maryland has already been gunned down by the police because he didn’t immediately surrender his guns. This threat is serious.
