Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) is leading the charge for gun control in the U.S. Senate, calling for “red flag” laws to be passed to legalize gun confiscations.
Rubio is not letting this crisis go to waste following this past weekend’s mass shootings, as he is relentlessly pushing for firearm restrictions that could conceivably be abused to take firearms away from conservative Republicans.
Our “Red Flag” proposal is the best path forward.
Unlike some of the other ideas out there:

He opened up about his full-fledged support for the measure during a recent interview with Fox 13 in Tampa Bay where he defended gun control to the fake news media.
“‘Red flag’ legislation makes all the sense in the world. Today, if you identify someone as dangerous, you can’t do anything about the guns or the weapons they have until they commit a crime,” Rubio said, explaining his disdain for due process and the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution.
“How it works in Florida, is that you have to go before a judge. It can only be a family member, or someone who lives with you, or law enforcement. You have to prove to a judge that this individual is a danger, and you have to meet a certain standard, and then they can issue a court order, which can’t be any longer than a year,” Rubio added.
The anti-constitutional legislator used the tragedy to score political points and betray the tea party values that initially put him into the U.S. Senate.
“As a father, husband, and American, I am as concerned as anyone about the serious epidemic of violence plaguing our nation. Whether this violence is the product of radical jihadists, white supremacists, or personal grievances, too many killers have taken the lives of far too many innocent Americans. We must confront the societal and cultural issues that breed violence,” Rubio said.
“Research has shown that the vast majority of these terrorists and killers exhibit clear warning signs before committing these atrocities. That is why I have offered a number of bipartisan proposals to help identify and stop them before they act. I will continue to push for these solutions and support any new law that can prevent these tragedies,” he added.
In addition to red flag laws, Rubio also supports the Threat Assessment, Prevention, and Safety (TAPS) Act, legislation that would create a new federal bureaucracy tasked with formulating gun control schemes.
Jared Yanis of “Guns & Gadgets” recently explained how the TAPS Act would profile gun owners and create the underpinnings of a national pre-crime system:
Rubio is leading the GOP astray, as usual, and showing why he was rejected soundly as the Republican presidential nominee in 2016. President Trump would be wise to stop taking cues from the likes of Rubio and stand up firmly for the Bill of Rights.
“NFAC” Militia Leader Grand Master Jay Shows His Pitiful Knowledge of Firearms
This was laughable.
The leader of the black nationalist “Not F****** Around Coalition,” self-titled “Grand Master Jay,” (real name John Fitzgerald Johnson) demonstrates a poor knowledge of firearms in a new video of the militia leader.
The NFAC is a black militia group that actively supports secession from the United States, and has engaged in several armed protests for purposes of political intimidation. The group went viral for an armed march at Stone Mountain, Georgia, in which they hailed and hassled motorists.
Twitter user and firearms enthusiast @LouisvilleGun published the video of Grand Master Jay on Wednesday morning, in which he makes a series of false claims about an AR-15 style rifle.

First, the Grand Master makes the claim that the AR-15 rifle he’s holding is a “bullpup.” A bullpup rifle’s magazine is placed behind its trigger group in proximity to the shooter. An AR rifle is not a bullpup rifle.
Johnson calls the rifle an “XR-15 shorty,” and claims that he bought the gun in 1990 in Germany. Firearms imported from Germany aren’t unheard of in American civilian ownership, but the rifle looks much more like an American-made Colt AR rifle.
Jay then goes on to demonstrate closing the caught bolt of the rifle by applying force to the stock. But he falsely claims that such an action will fire a live round from the rifle, when in reality it’ll just place a round in the chamber. Only the trigger can fire the rifle. Johnson also says this form of negligent discharge can happen when the safety is activated.
Perhaps most strangely, the militia leader goes on to claim that recruits in basic training for the armed services accidentally kill themselves on the regular through setting off that exact form of impossible negligent discharge and shooting themselves in the head. There’s no reason to believe that has ever happened, and if it did, it would almost assuredly be a major scandal leading to scrutiny of the military’s training practices.
An armed protestor of the NFAC shot three of his own demonstrators through a negligent discharge at a recent Louisville, Kentucky event. Maybe Grand Master Jay should’ve taught him more fundamental gun safety instead of incorrectly teaching that you can fire an AR-15 merely by closing the bolt of the rifle with a loaded magazine.
