FLASHBACK: Maryland Man Killed by Red Flag Law

Published

on

Today’s outrage culture has created a sense of amnesia among Americans.

It’s too easy to forget about events that happened months ago.

With discussions about red flag gun confiscation orders heating up after shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio all, gun owners should be reminded of the potential dangers of these laws.

On the Monday morning of November 6, 2018, a 61-year-old man, Gary Willis,  was served a red flag gun confiscation order in Ferndale, Maryland.

Two police officers knocked on Willis’ door at 5 AM in the morning to serve him the court order to take his gun.

What seemed like a routine court order delivery, quickly turned violent.

When the officers demanded that Willis hand over his gun, he became irate and a struggle ensued.

Eventually, one of the cops shot and killed Willis during the struggle.

Anne Arundel County Police Chief Timothy Altomare came to the cops’ defense by asserting that they “did the best they could with the situation they had.”

Maryland’s “red flag” law was signed by Republican Governor Larry Hogan in 2018.  In October 2018, the first month Maryland’s red flag law went into effect, 114 requests were made to confiscate firearms.

Fast forward to 2019, more Republicans such as Congressman Dan Crenshaw and Senators Lindsey Graham and Pat Toomey are now supporting this idea, much to their constituents’ potential detriment.

The growing consensus around red flag gun confiscation orders shows that gun rights are no longer respected by both parties in Washington.

The incident that took place last year serves as an omen of what is to come on a national scale if a red flag bill become federal law.

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.
