Red Flag laws do nothing to help the allegedly dangerous person they’re removing the gun from. It couldn’t be more obvious that these laws are designed only as a means of confiscation.
Virginia – -(AmmoLand.com)- Let’s talk red flag laws, or Extreme Risk Protection Orders. These laws have been passed by nineteen states. On paper (much like communism) they seem like good ideas. But they are an abuse of power waiting to happen. In Colorado, the first red flag warrant was filed falsely by a woman whose son was killed by an officer in a justified shooting.
In Maryland, twice now, Red Flag gun confiscations have lead to the death of two innocent men. Duncan Lemp and Gary Willis.
In Virginia, in a resource-wasting double-down, Red Flag laws have been used against criminals who would have already lost their firearm privileges due to the crime they committed as well as people who are dealing with a mental health crisis. In one case it was used against a man who had a dispute with his family.
