The Truth about Guns|From Redcoats to Red Flag Laws – How Have We Fallen So Far?

Yesterday I was in court on a domestic-related issue involving a firearm. My client was in a bad position. He was someone who had never been in trouble before when all of a sudden, after a disagreement with his girlfriend, he was thrown into the legal system.

This started as a situation where he was attacked by his girlfriend and he called the police for help. When police arrived, as my client waited outside his apartment, the police went in, spoke with his girlfriend, and then marched back outside and arrested him. His girlfriend had told police that he pointed a gun at her.

The allegation alone got him arrested. Fortunately, things went well for us in court. The girlfriend, who had lied to police, decided that even though the couple was now separated, she did not want to get on the stand and further perjure herself by telling more falsehoods. The charges against my client were dismissed.

“Red flag” confiscations often start with just such a complaint. This particular issue began as a false allegation that resulted in my client’s arrest, my client having to pay me, and my client having to take time off of work to appear in court on two separate occasions before we got charges dismissed.

What happened to the lying girlfriend? Absolutely nothing. Do you really think those who lie when making a red flag report will be prosecuted? Keep in mind, that even in an alternate reality where they are prosecuted, to be convicted of making false statements they would have to be proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. This is unlikely.

Meanwhile, the gun owner’s weapons are seized based on the much lower civil standard of a preponderance of the evidence.

Why would we expand the ability of the system to perpetrate such injustice? Why would we voluntarily create avenues for people to harass gun owners with no real repercussions for abuse of the system? Most importantly, why would we allow a confiscation system that seems to simultaneously impact so many of our constitutional rights at the same time?

The First, Second, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, and Fourteenth Amendments are all impacted by proposed red flag laws. We know what these laws look like. Where implemented, these laws generally allow the removal of firearms from someone’s home, without notice or an opportunity for the gun owner to be heard in court in advance of the removal, based on the allegations of a third party.

Constitutionally, lack of procedural due process as provided for in the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments is impacted through lack of prior notice and opportunity for the gun owner to be heard. Neither does the gun owner get to have an attorney advocate for him in court before removal of his weapons, implicating the Sixth Amendment.

Your ability to keep and bear arms is limited, obviously impacting the Second Amendment, and when what you say can be construed as a threat such that you are suspected of being a “danger to yourself or others,” that impacts the First Amendment.

Almost more concerning is the impact red flag laws have on the Fourth Amendment limitation on unreasonable search and seizure. While the Fourth Amendment has already been eviscerated judicially limited, red flag laws take this to a whole new level.

Without articulation that any crime has yet been committed, or that probable cause of a crime exists, your home is searched for weapons. Think law enforcement will just grab your rifle and leave? Doubtful. Could every tiny corner of your home contain ammunition or even a miniscule NAA .22 revolver? Then it can and likely will be searched.

Whatever is found will be used against you. Your teenage son had weed hidden in his dresser? Enjoy being prosecuted for that. Even without having anything to hide, who wants state troopers rummaging through your underwear drawer?

Another common misperception: do you think law enforcement officers will refuse to carry out these potentially unlawful searches? Don’t be naïve. Ask yourself whether state troopers in New Jersey (who also take an oath to uphold and defend the U.S. Constitution) will happily arrest you on constitutionally dubious grounds should you be caught with even a single hollow point round in your glovebox while in the state.

Maryland law enforcement has already shown up and killed a gun owner while carrying out a red flag confiscation order. Law enforcement will do what they have been trained to do…enforce the laws that they are told to enforce.

Importantly, most states already have a procedure in place to deal with persons who appear to be a threat to themselves or others. These procedures assist people in getting help, and commonly hold them for up to 72 hours, or longer with judicial sign-off to make sure that they do not harm themselves or others.

Allowing a potentially dangerous person to stay in place, but raiding their home to confiscate firearms seems suspiciously like a method designed to confiscate firearms, not a method meant to actually stop threats.

Such gun-grabbing should not be tolerated in our country. When British soldiers attempted to seize the arms of colonists, the colonists fought back. I can only imagine the type of threat that the colonists would have been perceived as today.

While I am certainly not advocating people take up arms against the government now, I think that a more modern and more peaceful approach to vigorous activism is in order. Learn about the threat of red flag laws when they are proposed in your state. Reach out to your politicians to point out the numerous constitutional failures of this kind of legislation.

Let politicians know that you will not vote for people who allow such extreme abrogation of your constitutional rights. Most importantly get out and actually vote against those who are so willing to see your rights violated.

Refugee Resettlement Watch taken down by WordPress??? #Tech Tyranny

After 12 years of publishing one of the most informative blogs on WordPress concerning Immigration the Tech CENSORS strike again!!!

PLEASE write to WordPress and complain!!! THEN write your State Representatives. You can locate them here: https://www.house.gov/representatives/find-your-representative

Google’s Censorship EXPOSED!

Every Conservative on the planet KNOWS that Google, YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook have been censoring Conservative speech for some time now.

I have personally been censored many times by these Tech scumbags. But what is worse is when Conservatives like Crowder get censored or take fake copyright strikes on YouTube or the other platforms when they are PAYING to advertise on these platforms!!!

To me that is THEFT! Plain and simple. They take your advertising dollars and then censor your content, or delay it being viewed until it is no longer relavent.

Google believes it should be the arbiter of the information Americans have access to. Google and these other platforms like hiding behind terms like “Hate Speech”.

They are slandering Conservatives by saying they are promoting “Hate Speech” when in fact they simply don’t like their politics. I despise a LIAR!!! And they are liars ALL!!!

I want to see these monopolies broken up for the common good. I also want to see Justice served here. These companies should be FORCED to refund advertising dollars spent by people being censored on their platforms.

They should also lose the protections given to them by the government which protects them from liability claims. They are given these protections because they are a “platform” and not a publisher.

Since they choose to “edit” the content on their platforms by silencing Conservatives, calling them “Racists” and making false claims in order to remove or censor their content…. They should lose this protection and be treated like any other publisher and be liable for what is on their platform!!!

PLEASE write your State Representative today!!! And also write to Congress please.

PLEASE GET INVOLVED WHILE YOU STILL HAVE A VOICE!!!

Border Crisis turned Invasion

The Border Crisis is all in our heads according to Democrats. But according to this man from the Border Patrol it’s getting VERY REAL VERY FAST!!!

Border Patrol Update

The Border Invasion is getting out of hand!

Not only is George Soros funding these “Caravans” of illegals heading into the United States, he is also getting US taxpayer money to help fund it!!!

So Americans are footing the bill to bring these Illegal #Immigrants to the United States, then we get to fund trying to deport them all!!!

Don’t you just love how Democrats and Congress spend our tax dollars???

Soros and Taxpayers funding Caravans of illegal immigrants crossing into the United States!

George Soros and United States taxpayers are actually funding the endless caravans heading to the US border!

It’s amazing to me that the people in Congress are so corrupt, so evil, and just so dishonest that they’d actually use taxpayer money to finance these caravans bringing illegal immigrants to the United States. The United States gives funds to the UN which in turn gives the money to George Soros who uses it to fund these caravans!

Then use the same taxpayers money to try to control the invasion!!! This is CRIMINAL and it’s time that Americans wake up to what’s really going on!!!

Censored Lou Dobbs footage

Censored Lou Dobbs footage of guest talking about taxpayers funding these caravans from InfoWars

It’s just amazing to me the criminality that we have in Congress and top to bottom in the Democratic Party! They are looking to collapse the American economy at all cost. Democrats have went over the edge completely. They are now openly calling for Socialism and every Democrat running for President supports the Green New Deal which would certainly be the death of America!

There is only 1 way for Americans to save this country at this point. We must send HAND WRITTEN letters to our State Representatives calling for them to support the Article 5 Convention of States.

Congress will NEVER reel themselves in!!! Only we can make this happen. The Founders KNEW the strong possibility that Congress could go out of control. That is why they put in the Constitution! The first part of Article 5 allows Congress to amend the Constitution, the second part of Article 5 is for the STATES to take control of an out of control Congress!!!

And that is what we have in America today! Please look into “Article 5 Convention of States” and don’t listen to those who talk about “how dangerous it is” because those are lies told by the people in Congress now!!!

It requires 34 states to amend the Constitution, so their claims of all the insanity which could come out of it is baseless. PLEASE listen to Mark Levin speak about it here:

Mark Levin Article 5 Convention of States

Mark Levin Article 5 Convention of States

Now PLEASE go and sign the petition calling for a Convention of States!!! The link is below. America needs YOU!!! Sign the petition and PLEASE SHARE!!!

Official Convention of States website petition

Official Convention of States website petition

The founders put section 2 of Article 5 into the Constitution for a reason! The reason has become very clear as we watch Congress, the Media, and Democrats spiral out of control If we don’t act now the criminals in Congress may amend the Constitution removing the States’ ability to amend it!!! It’s TIME to TAKE AMERICA BACK!!!

Democrats ARE the “Existential Threat” they keep talking about!!!

The #Socialist #Democrats‘ new favorite term is “Existential Threat”. They toss it around like a little kid with a brand new toy in reference to “Climate Change”.

CO2 is actually GOOD for the planet, it is a by-product produced by human beings themselves!!! All of the trees and the plants on this planet “breathe” CO2 and “exhale” Oxygen, which human beings NEED to survive.

So their argument is flawed to say the least!!! Their BS “science” is designed for one purpose. CONTROL. They want to control EVERYTHING through government.

I am really sick of hearing how “Climate Change” is an Existential Threat!!! Big words and small minds don’t mix well!!

Let’s talk about the REAL Existential Threat. DEMOCRATS and the New World Order. They want to control EVERYONE on this planet!!! They want to micromanage your everyday life.

They want to control your diet, the information you are “allowed” to have, and even what information shows up when you do a search on Google.

The REAL Existential Threat we face as humans is these people who want to control us all!!!

That’s why they want to take your #Guns!!! You cannot exercise total control over people until you disarm them!!!

Friend………. They are looking to have TOTAL CONTROL over this planet and EVERYONE on it!!!

I personally believe they are such a threat to ALL of us that they need to be ejected from government altogether. Many of them BELONG in #Prison!!!

You better take notice NOW!!! Because they are fighting EVERY DAY to realize their dream of TOTAL CONTROL.

There have been more mass shootings in America since #Obama took office than there was in ALL OF HISTORY!!!

And the FIRST thing you’ll hear after each of these shootings is “Gun Control”!!! And “We must ban these guns and those guns and the other guns to guarantee our safety.

It has become such a regular occurrence that I have come to believe the Democrats themselves are involved in these mass shootings for the sole purpose of disarming YOU!!!

Nevermind the FACT that gun control would NOT have stopped a single one of these shootings.

Nevermind the FACT that disarming EVERY LAW-ABIDING CITIZEN in America WOULD NOT STOP THESE SHOOTINGS!!!

#Criminals do NOT obey the #Laws. So no matter what kind of law you create a CRIMINAL will ignore it!!! #Murder is already illegal!!! Most of these mass shootings occur in parts of the country that have the STRICTEST GUN CONTROL LAWS!!!

So it’s easy to see that it does NOT work. They don’t care!!!

What they want is TOTAL POWER over EVERYONE on the planet!!! In order to achieve that they MUST disarm EVERY LAW ABIDING CITIZEN IN THE COUNTRY!!!

Look at New Zealand!!! Islamic Terrorists have carried out 34,772 DEADLY ATTACKS since 9/11.

And 1 Mosque gets attacked killing 50 people or so and New Zealand instantly wants to ban just about all weapons!!!

These people will do ANYTHING to get TOTAL CONTROL over YOU and your family, including stage mass shootings in my opinion!!! It’s up to YOU to stop them!!!

Join the NRA!!! Write every Congressman in #Congress!!! DEFEND THE SECOND AMENDMENT until your last breath

with EVERYTHING you have!!!

It’s the ONLY thing that protects humanity from these people gaining TOTAL CONTROL over them!!!

You want to talk Existential Threats Democrats? IT’S YOU!!!

#Vote #Republican and defend the 2nd amendment with your LIFE!!!
