Will Arizona fall to gun control pressure?
One of America’s most pro-gun states may be considering gun control.
According to AWR Hawkins, Governor Doug Ducey is considering a red flag gun confiscation order.
On August 15, 2018, the AZ Capitol reported that Ducey wants to make his STOP (Severe Threat Order of Protection) Orders the “crown jewel” of his gun control agenda.
Red flag laws have become the gun control flavor of the month since the Parkland shooting in 2018.
He claims that the “STOP plan — the Severe Threat Order of Protection — is the crown jewel of our safe schools plan.” The governor added, “It’s the one tool that could have eliminated the mass shootings that have happened in other places in the country.”
Despite their hype, Red Flag gun confiscation laws have not prevented some of America’s most notorious mass shooting, which Hawkins notes below:
For example, Illinois has a confiscatory Red Flag Law, but that did not prevent the February 15, 2019, Henry Pratt Company shooting that killed five innocents. California also has a confiscatory Red Flag Law, but that did not prevent the November 7, 2018, Borderline Bar & Grill shooting that killed 12. Moreover, Florida also adopted a Red Flag Law after the Parkland attack, and that law did not prevent the January 23, 2019, SunTrust Bank shooting in which five innocents were killed.
When Breitbart News got in contact with Ducey’s office asking about the governor’s stance on Red Flag Laws, a member of his media team cited an article from Never Trumper David French for their support of red flag legislation.
They provided the Breitbart team with a quote from French, which described Ducey’s gun control as “perhaps the most intelligent policy response to school shootings (and, honestly, mass shootings more generally) that [he has] ever read.”
Ducy’s spokesman Patrick Ptak provided another quote documenting the National Rifle Association’s support for red flags as well:
There’s a reason why NRA’s Arizona director has said this ‘bill would protect the rights of law-abiding Arizonans. It ensures due process, requiring one of the highest standards of evidence from a judge: Clear and Convincing Proof. STOP orders are temporary and require law enforcement to return firearms after expiration, and the bill imposes severe felony penalties for filing false petitions.
BLP held an interview with the newly formed American Firearms Coalition, which specifically railed against the NRA and other “pro-gun” organizations for supporting red flag gun confiscation legislation.
Gun owners will now have to look elsewhere for genuine support of their pro-gun ideas.
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
