The Evolution of SWATing and Red Flag Laws ~ VIDEO

Dan Wos, Author of – Good Gun Bad Guy

USA – -( Not only do gun owners have to deal with unreasonable attacks on the 2nd Amendment; the anger that some anti-gunners hold toward gun owners becomes a problem as well.

Along with an irrational fear of guns, anti-gun politicians and media have been successful in cultivating a hatred toward gun owners by encouraging people to believe that gun owners are recklessly and intentionally putting people in danger.

“We have federal regulations and state laws that prohibit hunting ducks with more than three rounds. And yet it’s legal to hunt humans with 15-round, 30-round, even 150-round magazines.” – Dianne Feinstein

“…it is easier for a 12- or 13-year-old to purchase a gun, and cheaper, than it is for them to get a book.” – Barack Obama

“They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” – Barack Obama

Another big part of the anti-gun strategy has been to pump nomenclatures like “gun violence,” “wild west,” and “assault weapon” into our culture. This terminology is specifically created to scare those who are unable to rationalize the idea of gun-ownership. A number of people who carry this irrationally-cultivated fear of guns, appear every once in a while to make things difficult on law-abiding gun owners.

SWATing was a popular sport among some anti-gunners, as a way of punishing gun owners and putting good people in danger. The term was developed because police would arrive on an otherwise peaceful scene when called upon by these anti-gunners. Anti-gunners would often call the cops if they saw someone with a gun that they could qualify (in their mind) as a potential danger to society. This often leads to cops arriving and putting the unsuspecting gun owner in danger, sometimes resulting in the death of innocent people. An innocent man was killed in a SWATing call for merely being seen cleaning his guns. You can read more about SWATing and see actual conversations between anti-gunners discussing their SWATing strategies in Good Gun Bad Guy.

SWATing evolved into Extreme Risk Protection Orders (ERPO), a.k.a. Red Flag Laws.

ERPOs came about by State governments giving legal authority to almost anyone should they believe a gun owner was a danger to themselves or society. ERPOs can often be executed on merely an accusation from an anonymous source. The result being the confiscation of guns on the private property of the accused without a hearing. The argument against ERPOs centers around the inherent violation of civil rights and lack of due process. Gary Willis of Maryland was killed in his own home by cops executing an unconstitutional Red Flag (ERPO) confiscation.

Joe Biden‘s plan for gun control includes a heinous component from A bill called HR 127, sponsored by Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee, that if signed into law would create a gun registry. This registry would include the gun owner’s name, address, type of guns, and serial numbers.

The worst part about Joe’s registry is that it would be public information, giving every anti-gunner a list of all the registered guns in the country, names of the gun owners, and the home addresses where the guns can be found.

A portion of the anti-gun crowd has always enjoyed turning in their fellow gun-owning citizens. Joe Biden’s dream of gun control would put good people in danger by making them unarmed and defenseless while making gun owners targets of politically motivated attacks. It’s no surprise that something like this would be on the gun-grab list of the Biden Administration because chaos and turning people against each other seems to be a common goal of the political left.

A divided citizenry is easier to control, and any chance to blame guns gives the gun-grabbers justification for ignoring their own failed policies.

The 2nd Amendment is not a privilege. It’s your right.

Among all nations of the world, the USA is smack in the middle of the list of nations ranked by homicides per capita. The nations above us and below us have one thing in common: almost all of them have severe restrictions on private gun ownership. So, those on the bottom end of the list can’t say “we have low murder rates because we can’t have guns” because those on the top of the list can’t have guns, either. What is different between high murder rate countries and low murder rate countries is culture. Countries with established, stable cultures that… Read more »


Funny how the Politicians don’t want to look at the science. It may be RACIST.


They only look and create the science that benefits their agenda.


ours is not as stable as it seamed, swatting and red flag shaming all bs designed to take power, and unconstitutional. how nice that only they have rights, keep your guns cleaned ,oiled, and loaded it is coming to “THAT”

YES! The only correct/accurate, rational, reasonable measuring stick IS “per capita.” Any other attempt at measuring/defining homicide relationships between countries is outright fraudulent lying.


Go down to the neighborhood if you really want to see some nightmares. There are a lot of non-violent people who live in Cook County, Illinois. By looking at violence at the county level it dilutes the insane amount of violence going on in individual neighborhoods. Here is the data related to the Englewood neighborhood of Chicago as compared to the area I live in: Englewood Population: 28,000 2020 Homicides 71 2019 Homicides 40 2018 Homicides 54 2017 Homicides 49 Four year total 214 Four year average 53.5 53.5/(28,000/100,000) = Homicides per 100,000 = 191 Area I live in: 1.26 homicides per… Read more »


The two most recent murders near where I live were caused by Black males who resided in huge apartment complexes. There are none of those within my city limits or the areas where the children would attend our schools. This is intentional and by design. We don’t want the trash around us anymore than we have to have it. We are not “woke” here, we are “awake.”


Many will call people racist if they refuse to stop at a stop sign at night in an area in which the homicide rate is 15,000% higher than in many other areas.


When will a Pro 2nd Amendment organization (or a Pro 2nd Amendment politician) get the data on Florida’s red flag laws? Of the thousands of people who had their rights violated and their property seized without due process and had to hire lawyers to prove they were innocent of a crime that wasn’t committed, how many of those people were adjudicated as having a violent mental illness and confined to a mental institution to keep them separate from society? I would be surprised if it was more than 1%. If they are so violent that their firearms had to be… Read more »


Agree – disarm and intimidate.

I swat back, and my swatter is bigger…


TStheDeplorable, you sir have nailed it. This should be sung by our school children every morning right after morning prayer and the Pledge.
The dangerous dims insist on their way which causes most of the problems then not wanting a crisis to go to waste they want a punitive response to fix their disaster……rinse & repeat.


They are way ahead of that story.

New outbreaks of COVID-19 will be attributed to limited re-opening of schools, so the schools will be shut down again (and small businesses).

COVID-19 has been the solution to so many of totalitarians’ problems.


and control of the people.


Inability to control people as much as they wanted was one of “their” problems. Another problem for “them” was the fact that a constitutional republic with a free market based on capitalism was (with all its defects) by far the best system ever devised. They have been working diligently to overload that system so they can say “see – that didn’t work” and implement their favorite flavor of totalitarianism: You don’t think the purpose of the trillions in “relief” was to help people, do you? Another problem for “them” was the right of free assembly. Another problem for “them”… Read more »


I’m quite sure now that the demonrats are in charge they will be sending them to republican strong holds to weaken the republican vote, destroy their towns and kill the people off with covid. Gotta keep the covid going to control the people.

FOPA forbids a registry of Title 1 firearms and the owners. That section would have to be repealed or amended for HR127 to be valid.


The Constitution of the United States says shall not be infringed but you see how well that worked out.


If big cities didn’t vote the trash in, we wouldn’t have the problem and that can be proven by the results of the numbers. Just look at SF, Portlandia, Seattle, chicago etc. Demonrat cities are their own problem.
