135 House Republicans Just Voted for a National Red Flag Law

One hundred and thirty-five House Republicans have voted in favor of legislation that includes red flag gun confiscation provisions. “A provision in the 2022 National Defense Authorization Act would allow military courts to issue protective orders that include “Red Flag” gun confiscation.”

According to American Military News,

 

In the legislation, those beholden to the United States Code of Military Justice could be issued a “military court protective order” by a military judge or magistrate, which would make “possessing, receiving, or otherwise accessing a firearm” illegal.

 

You might say, well, that’s just people in the military. You mean people who swore to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States from all threats, foreign and domestic. Why would a Government want to disarm them, I wonder?

Having trained them to be efficient at war and most if not all forms of combat before any real leap toward a lasting despotism of the elite, it might not be a bad idea to deprive these potential irritants of their firearms. But not just them.

 

Gun Owners of America (GOA), a pro-Second Amendment gun rights advocacy group, warned the military gun confiscation orders could provide lawmakers with a precedent to extend the rule to the general population.

“Like the proverbial camel’s nose in the tent, allowing this provision to remain in a bill pertaining to the military will eventually work its way into legislation applying to the rest of the population,” GOA wrote. “That’s why we need to raise our voices in unison against these gun confiscation orders.”

 

Yes, it would set a precedent, and yes, the gun-grabbers would try to expand it at the earliest opportunity. They are not even shy about that. Their candidates for president run on it these days. So, you might also wonder, why would 135 Republicans vote for this? Folks like Dan Crenshaw, Matt Gaetz,

They either didn’t know it was in there, or they did, neither of which is acceptable.

This is a nationwide grant to confiscate firearms without concern for due process or property rights and an incremental assault on second, fourth, and fifth amendment rights.
