Gun Owners of America Ask New York To Red Flag Senator Chuck Schumer ~ VIDEO

Opinion

Albany, New York-(Ammoland.com)- New York State has one of the most robust “red flag” laws in the country. It allows a petitioner to seek an extreme risk protection order (ERPO) if there is a threat of violence against others.

At a pro-abortion rally, Senator Chuck Schumer publicly threatened that Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch “would pay the price” if they ruled in favor of a Louisiana’s law that requires abortion doctors have admitting privileges at a hospital. Schumer is an advocate of abortion and sees any restrictions on the practice as unconstitutional.

At the same time, Schumer thinks that restrictions on the Second Amendment are perfectly Constitutional. A lot of Gun owners see this contraction as hypocritical similar to their views on Bloomberg’s opinion that he is more deserving of security than the average American.

The Senator’s full statement was this: “I want to tell you, Gorsuch. I want to tell you, Kavanaugh. You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”

The comment drew criticism from Republicans in the Senate, House of Representatives, President Trump, and even a rare rebuke from Chief Justice John Roberts. They called Schumer’s statement a clear threat to the Justices.

Roberts’s statement reads: “Justices know that criticism comes with the territory, but threatening statements of this sort from the highest levels of government are not only inappropriate, they are dangerous. All members of the court will continue to do their job, without fear or favor, from whatever quarter.”

Now Gun Owners of America (GOA) is asking New York State to issue an ERPO against Chuck Schumer.

In the letter to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, GOA’s Senior Vice, Erich Pratt, highlights that the gun-rights group opposed the New York red flag law. It also lays out how they are concerned that the courts disproportionately execute red flag laws in minority and poor neighborhoods. The group further states that the organization believes that the rich and powerful might get a pass when it comes to the law.

The letter also shares the story of Gary J. Willis, age 61, of Anne Arundel County, Maryland. Willis was shot and killed by police when they were serving an ERPO against him. His sister filed the order against him because of a dispute about his mother’s care. Maryland also executes the majority of ERPO in minority areas.

GOA Letter to NY Gov and AG Re Schumer March 6, 2020

Pratt asks the Governor to enforce the law fairly by issuing an ERPO against Senator Schumer. GOA will use this request as a test to see if its concern is legitimate. Schumer was a big supporter of the New York Red Flag law and pushed for the adoption of a similar law nationwide. Both Senator Schumer and Governor Cuomo are both members of the New York Democratic party.

The letter also highlights that Schumer also appears to have violated 40 U.S.C. section 6134 since the pro-abortion rally took place on the steps of the Supreme Court Building.

The code states: “It is unlawful to … make a harangue or oration, or utter loud, threatening, or abusive language in the Supreme Court Building or grounds.”

Pratts says that the GOA and the American people are waiting to see if the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia will apply the law equally between average American citizens and the ruling class. If the U.S. Attorney does decide to prosecute Schumer, then he would face “a fine or imprisonment of not more than 60 days, or both.”

Pratt asserts that if New York decides not to enforce their red flag law against the Senator, then it would show that New York’s gun laws are applied harshly to the general public while leaving the rich and powerful immune from such enforcement. It would verify the average gun owner’s fear that there is a double standard in how laws are enforced.

Pratt also included a draft application for a Temporary Extreme Risk Protection Order for Senator Chuck Schumer.

While the liberal loons are attacking the NRA, all the other pro-gun groups can go about their work with less harassment by the anti’s. That is one good thing the NRA is doing..

senator PUTZ is mentally unbalanced and a threat to the safety of the public especially Judges. He said so in a speech to the public. His threats were obvious. He should be arrested and hospitalized then prosecuted.

I’m no lawyer, but if Senator Schumer is not physically present in New York, I doubt that the State of New York can do anything at the moment, other than paperwork. However, Washington DC has a Red Flag law in place. And Chuckie did make those statements in that jurisdiction.

He has a home there that can be searched and any guns found confiscated under New York’s red flag laws. He can also have his apartment and person searched in DC.

I have forever been saying that Republicans need to learn how to fight fire with fire. It’s about time they bloodied their opponents nose with the same accountability that they demand of us. If the law is “absurd” for the ruling class (ERPO,) then it’s absurd on the face of it. Life in America is a two-way street, not a one-way where political Mac trucks that forget to honk have the right-of-way, as they spit the people’s tricycle out the backside.

He should, at a minimum, be censured if not removed from the senate. He should also have the ERPO placed on him.

What’s good for any ordinary citizen should also good for any politician, if not more so.

Arm up, and carry on.

I like it. Cuomo is a hothead, this probably caused an increase in the milligram of his ulcer medication. True to form, fat-boy Barr will do nothing; his elite family members probably know Schumer’s from Notre Dame or somewhere else high in society.

This is a great idea. We have to start playing hardball. Use their laws against them. Since these ERPO’s would I believe require all firearms around them to be taken Schumers body guards should be disarmed as he may attempt to take their arms

Schumer didn’t use terms like shoot, gun or kill. But clearly, his use of the term “whirlwind” as initially used by Air Marshal Arthur Harris suggests an extremely violent act. To be precise, Harris said “They sowed the wind and now they are going to reap the whirlwind.” I’ve not yet heard whether or not victims of red flag laws will be permitted to keep their armed, professional security details. Perhaps red flag laws apply only to those who cannot afford to hire such services.

Schumer, Pelosi and everyone else who had a hand in attacking Trump and his workforce should ALREADY BE IN JAIL. What Schumer did is threatening and he knew this when he said it. He meant it to be threatening. He was also inciting a mob much the same as many dirt bag demoncraps have done in the last 50 years. Had I or anybody else gone to somebody’s workplace and made threats the law would and should be called. We have seen decades of demoncraps walking free of the crimes they do. The clintons — both of them, obama bin… Read more »

I’ll wager that Schumer didn’t see that ERPO coming.
