Red Flag Gun Laws Are NOT About Mental Health, It’s All A Lie! ~ VIDEO

USA – -( Extreme Risk Protection Orders, also known as Red Flag Laws, are created specifically to confiscate guns without the hindrance of due process getting in the way.

The idea behind Red Flag Laws is to make it as easy as possible for people to accuse acquaintances of being mentally unfit or dangerous to themselves or society. The process begins with a simple accusation from a friend, family, former spouse, ex-roommate, or member of law enforcement. As in H.R.2377, this process has been streamlined to make it as easy as possible for accusers to submit their accusations. Often with Red Flag Laws, just an affidavit is necessary. The result of the accusation is the forceful confiscation of the respondent’s firearms. The respondent is afforded no court hearing or legal representation prior to the unconstitutional confiscation, resulting in a blatant violation of due process rights clearly listed in the fifth and fourteenth amendments.

Red flag laws are created under the guise of mental health safety. In other words, the actions taken and the primary focus of all the text within the laws focuses on the justification of confiscating guns, but mental health is the excuse that is used. The interesting thing that we find when we look at the 17 states which have enacted Red Flag Laws, is that only one of them even mentions mental illness and none of them require that a mental health expert be involved in the process.

Zero provisions have been included within the proposed national HR 2377 red flag law or of the 17 state Red Flag Laws to actually address the mental health of the respondent.

Nothing in any of these laws refers to help for the supposed sufferer of mental health issues and victims of this unconstitutional gonna grab. What makes it obvious that red flag laws are more about confiscating guns than they are about dealing with mental health issues, is that all states have laws that are commonly referred to as the Baker act statutes. These allow for the 72-hour hold and mental health observation of someone who may have mental health issues. So the laws are already in place to address the issues that red flag laws claim to address but completely ignore.

The intent of red flag laws in conjunction with universal background checks will result in a massive government database of firearms and the ability of law enforcement directed by local judges to go to these locations with a simple accusation and confiscate the guns. In order to enact red flag laws, the government needs to know where the guns are. This is where universal background checks come in. This is why we see Democrats desperately pushing for these two laws in tandem.

When you take away guns from people with mental health issues and do nothing to solve the underlying problem of mental health, you still have the issue of mental health. in other words, you’ve done nothing to help the person. But that’s not what this is really about. Red flag laws show us that the intent here is not to fix mental health issues but rather simply confiscate guns at will. Red flag laws also allow for anyone to determine the mental health of others by way of giving their accusations validity. HR 2377 would allow your former roommate, whose education and training is focused specifically on pizza delivery, to determine your mental health and activate a gun confiscation upon you.

If there was any intent within these laws to actually resolve mental health issues and protect people, there would be provisions to include mental health experts such as psychologists and psychiatrists in the process. There are none, indicating that the real intent behind these laws is to create an easy path to gun confiscation.

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

Red Flag laws are the wet dream of divorce attorneys.

Red flag laws have absolutely zero to do with safety. They are about gun confiscation.

If safety were the issue, the person is who needs to be dealt with, either for their own safety or that of others.

As we recently saw, nobody needs a gun to kill and maim many people. Red flag confiscations never take vehicles, cutting tools, hammers.

It’s about having another means to harass gun owners, pure and simple.


The mental health argument is currently a one way street, against you!


And how will they be sure they got all the GUNS ? LOL


“This is why we see Democrats desperately pushing for these two laws in tandem.” Why are you leaving out all the Republicans who have not only pushed for these laws but also enacted them? Florida’s red flag law was enacted by a Republicans. Trump, Cornyn, Crenshaw, Graham, and numerous others have advocated for these laws. I doubt there’s a single Democrat who opposes them. Everyone knows that. How about bringing attention to all the Republicans who support them? No doubt there are many here who would be surprised to learn of those names. Those are who you should be talking… Read more »


Another BIG problem with red flag laws is the way they say, “You have recourse through the courts to get your firearms back.” In a criminal case, you are entitled to a public defender to represent you in court. IN A RED FLAG CONFISCATION – NO CRIMINAL CHARGES ARE FILED! It is a civil case, you are not entitled to a public defender, and the cost of legal representation and court fees can easily put the whole process out of financial reach for many American Citizens! If two or three firearms are taken, the cost to get them returned would… Read more »

Don’t be fooled by thinking this is why we see only “…democrats desperately pushing for these two laws…”. On the Federal level, red flag laws involved “bipartisan Senate legislation sponsored by Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn.”. This isn’t the first time Little Lindsey has voted, as he describes it, to “remain relevant” in the Senate.


it is clearly obvious that they care little for the mental health of an individual if they do not include any mental health requirement. their intent is to decrease the number of firearms by any means necessary (bamn). just like they do not care that thousands of blacks are shooting other blacks in places like chiraq, they claim it is the white supremist and cops that are shooting blacks.
you can’t spell lie without a liberal.

Dan, you really should have provided a list of all the well-known names who are in favor of red flag laws. They include:
