GUN CONTROL 2020: New “Red flag” Laws to Take Effect in Several States This Week

Colorado, Nevada and Hawaii’s, new “red flag” gun control laws take effect this week joining over a dozen other states and the District of Columbia, which have already implemented similar regulations.

In essence, the new laws will allow a local judge – at the request of law enforcement officers or, in some states, a relative – to temporarily prohibit a person from having or buying firearms if the individual poses a significant danger to others or themselves.

In most cases, if the judge finds convincing evidence to support the initial concerns, the order can stay in effect up to a year.

But the law has proved controversial, with some law enforcement officials saying it violates the Second Amendment and that not only will they will not request an order, they will not enforce it if given one.

Despite heavy opposition from the National Rifle Association, which says the laws hinder the right to due process, the issue is even getting an airing at the national level from at least one key Republican: Sen. Lindsey Graham, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Graham told CBS’ “Face the Nation” earlier this year that he is a big supporter of protective order laws – but at the local, not federal level – and is pushing in his committee for a national grant program to “incentivize” states to pass them.

    Just another way for big brother to take away your weapons. Didn’t Hitler do the same thing. As I always say when they outlaw guns, then I will become a outlaw.

    A judge decides. What if he’s an activist one, who’s anti Trump and second amendment? The laws violate a number of constitutional rights. There have already been a plethora of abuses. There is no due process and no safe guards. Like gun free zones it’s only going to increase murder and crime. Not prevent it.

      YODA – you are correct. I’ll go even further – in most cases there is such a low threshold of ‘evidence’ required that it might as well not even exist. That level is ‘hearsay’ which is NOT allowed in most courts – with very few narrow exceptions. Look at the ‘classic’ example of the killing in Maryland (fortunately a very limited occurrence – so far) – the relative who dropped the dime on the victim was ‘mad’ at him, and turned him in for no legitimate reason. Never mind that the tactics of the ‘enforcers’ sucked.

    ‘Red Flag Laws’don’t just violate the 2nd amendment,they also violate the 4th,5th,6th,7th and 14th amendments to the Constitution of the United States of America.’Red Flag Laws’are a literal BACK DOOR GUN BAN and we must fight back against the anti-gunners tyranny.We have the power over these tyrants because of this constitutionally protected right.If we give in to them and their lies,they will rule over us with an iron fist.Guns don’t kill people,the person behind the gun does the killing.These officials who are making these illegal laws
    MUST be removed from office.They are violating their oath of office and to protect and uphold the Constitution of the United States of America.If the 2nd Amendment goes,so does the rest of our Constitutionally protected rights and our Bill of Rights.#FIGHTBACK

    If a person is of danger to himself or others he needs help. I don’t believe he needs possession of a firearm or anything else that can be used as a weapon. Which would mean almost anything. These red flag laws will definitely be abused. Furthermore any person deemed dangerous will find a way. His mental health needs to be considered as well.

    I agree with all of the above comments. If we give in to these idiots concerning red flag laws, they will take advantage of the passage of these laws and it will only get worse. I am a female with a CCW Permit and I have the right to defend myself! I hope that they don’t start another Civil War! Give the government a little leeway and they will go rampant with it!
