Democrats and left-wing Socialists have been working in overtime to deceive the American people and Republicans into believing that red-flag laws are truly designed to target only the mentally ill! However, that is not the case! In fact, the Democrats have been carefully crafting their red-flag bill to target primarily rural Americans, who are the biggest proponents of the 2nd Amendment, as well as, major supporters of the President, and the America First agenda!
Democrats see it as an easy swindle, as they try to convince Republicans into going along with their bill, so they can have their gun-control monitors on Facebook and other social media sites, note that anyone who defends the NRA, or supports the gun lobby, as mentally unstable, thereby unfit to own a firearm, triggering the police to have to steal guns away from law-abiding American citizens!
Then Tuesday, on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight, Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) joined Tucker Carlson to discuss the Democrats’ red flag gun laws, and he pointed out how the Democrats want to use the red-flag laws to take guns from rural Americans, but not from the real criminals! In fact, the Democrats voted down Rep. Buck’s amendment that simply includes confiscation of gang members guns in the legislation.
IN OTHER WORDS…DEMOCRATS WANT TO TAKE LAW-ABIDING RURAL AMERICANS GUNS AWAY, BUT NOT THE CRIMINALS!
The Washington Examiner reported that…
Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee amended the measure during a Wednesday mark-up to authorize the federal government to issue extreme risk protection orders in some instances, but they rejected an amendment that would have red-flagged anyone who law enforcement lists as a gang member.
“The majority of violent crime, including gun violence, in the United States is linked to gangs,” Rep. Ken Buck, a Colorado Republican who sponsored the amendment, said Wednesday. “My amendment is quite simple. It would allow the issuance of a red flag order against anyone whose name appears in a gang database if there was probable cause to include that individual in the database.”
Democrats objected with reasons that sounded very familiar to Republicans.
GOP lawmakers have staunchly opposed “No Fly, No Buy” proposals Democrats have tried to pass in the House in recent years because the lists flag the wrong people.
Like the no-fly lists, which have erroneously flagged many innocent individuals as terrorists (including the late Sen. Ted Kennedy), the gang databases are often inaccurate, Democrats said.
Interestingly, according to JPFO.org, 80% of murders in the United States that are carried out by guns, are committed by gang members. Now, as Democrats push to implemente red flag laws to stop gun violence and murder, they want to target Americans who are known to use guns to protect themselves, their family, their friends, and to make our communities safe! Meanwhile, Democrats want to give exceptions to gang members, because they claim it would wrongly target innocent Americans, who get caught up in the middle of gun violence! Amazingly, that has been what Conservatives have said about confiscating Americans guns, using red flag laws, etc. for years!
