Dan Crenshaw is Against Universal Background Checks…. Yet Supports Red Flag Confiscation Laws

Published

A story of a young woman opening fire on five men trying to rob her gained traction across social media during the past week.

Ironically, establishment Republican congressman Dan Crenshaw tweeted that stories like this “are why we protect the 2nd Amendment.”

He specifically took on universal background checks and why they infringe on the Second Amendment:

‘With universal background checks, I wouldn’t be able to let my friends borrow my handgun when they travel alone like this. We would make felons out of people just for defending themselves.’

However, it’s curious how he supports some form of red flag law, which is one of the most popular forms of gun control proposals in the nation.

Not only do these laws infringe on the Second Amendment rights of individuals, they also violate due process rights by allowing dubious accusations to be sufficient cause for gun confiscation orders.

In a time when controlling the narrative is crucial, Crenshaw lets his guard down by conceding ground on the topic of red flag laws.

If Crenshaw wants to win back the support of gun owners, who are now beginning to question his loyalty to the Second Amendment, he must understand that all gun control solutions being proposed right now are infringements on the Second Amendment. They only work to disarm law-abiding people and potentially infringe on other rights like due process and free speech.
