Michael Hammond, the legislative counsel for Gun Owners of America, took Senator Lindsey Graham to task in a recent article for the Daily Caller.
Hammond declared that Graham “arrived with the year’s nuttiest idea: To make the GOP the party of gun confiscation and, in the process, jettison the Second Amendment movement from the Republican coalition.”
In this case, Hammond is referring to Graham’s plan to move red flag gun confiscation in the U.S. Senate.
According to Hammond, “To this end, Graham has scheduled a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on March 26 to consider legislation to confiscate large numbers of guns with no notice and no due process whatsoever.”
Over the past year and a half, two red flag bills have been introduced. The first version was introduced by Senator Graham and Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal.
Hammond provided some details about this bill:
Blumenthal-Graham would create a federal gun confiscation program whereby any police or an angry “ex” can petition for a secret court hearing to strip a gun owner of his Second, Fourth, Fifth, and 14th Amendment rights.
When only the accuser is in the room, a judge will normally sign anything that is put before him. In an analogous situation in New Mexico, for instance, a housewife obtained a restraining order against David Letterman for sending her coded messages over her TV set.
And the bill only gets uglier:
Under Blumenthal-Graham, the first thing a gun owner would learn of the proceedings is when the police showed up at his door in the middle of the night, ready to ransack his home and, if he resisted, to arrest or kill him.
Hammond’s fears are not without substance when we look at the infamous Maryland shooting:
In Ferndale, Maryland, a 60-year-old man was shot to death by police serving a “red flag order” at 5:17 a.m. It turned out that the complainant was a non-immediate relative seeking to punish the gun owner after an argument they had.
In addition to Blumenthal-Graham, there are alternatives —S.7 and s. 506—which fund states that have red flag gun confiscation laws in place.
There are 14 states with red flag laws present, with Florida and Indiana as the pro-gun exceptions to this list of red flag states.
In essence, S.7 and S,506 would effectively have Republican, pro-Second Amendment states subsidizing rabidly, anti-gun states to enforce their gun confiscation ordinances.
Although a red flag gun confiscation bill is no laughing matter, Hammond highlights one of the most farcical aspects of the bill:
S.7 has some comic aspects to it. For instance, any “individual related by blood” to the gun owner could bring a suit.
Hence, although Elizabeth Warren may be only 1/1024 Indian, any Cherokee could bring an action to strip her of her guns (assuming she had any). If Michael Bloomberg could go to ancestry.com and prove he was related to you, he could take your guns away.
It seems like the red flag gun confiscation movement that has made waves at the state level is now poised to make a splash at the federal level.
Gun owners must remember that threats to their gun rights don’t just come from Democrats, but also conniving Republicans in the party establishment.
Lindsey Graham happens to be one of those spineless Republicans, and gun owners must recognize that he is no friend of the Second Amendment.

British Politicians Believe that the Wuhan Virus Pandemic Might Have Come from a Leak at a Chinese Laboratory
Although senior insiders in the British government maintained that “the balance of scientific advice” is still sticking to the original theory that the virus was first spread to humans from a wet market in Wuhan, a leak coming out of a laboratory in Wuhan is “no longer being discounted.”
. A member of Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s emergency committee recently said that while the latest intelligence report did not argue that the virus was “zoonotic” – coming from animals – it did not toss out the theory that the virus came from a leak at a Wuhan laboratory.
The member of the “Cobra” committee, which receives classified information from the security services, commented: “There is a credible alternative view [to the zoonotic theory] based on the nature of the virus. Perhaps it is no coincidence that there is that laboratory in Wuhan. It is not discounted.”
Wuhan is where the Chinese Institute of Virology is based in.
This institute is generally viewed as one of the most secure virology units in the globe.
The government-backed People’s Daily newspaper stated back in 2018 that this institute was “capable of conducting experiments with highly pathogenic microorganisms” like the deadly Ebola virus.
Scientists at the institute were the first to indicate that the virus’s genome was 96 per cent similar to one usually found in bats.
Despite being known for its tight security, there have been unverified local reports of workers at the institute becoming infected after being sprayed by blood. Subsequently, they would carry out the infection and spread it to the local population.
A second institute in the city, the Wuhan Centre for Disease Control is also speculated to have conducted experiments on animals such as bats to understand how the Wuhan Virus is spread.
Professor Richard Ebright, of Rutgers University’s Waksman Institute of Microbiology, New Jersey, said that while there is evidence that the Wuhan Virus was not created in one of the Wuhan laboratories, such a concept is not outside the realm of possibility.
Professor Ebright claims to have seen evidence that scientists at the Centre for Disease Control and the Institute of Virology studied the viruses with only “level 2” security – instead of the suggested level 4 security level – which “’provides only minimal protections against infection of lab workers.”
He continued: “Virus collection, culture, isolation, or animal infection would pose a substantial risk of infection of a lab worker, and from the lab worker then the public.”
He concluded that the evidence established “a basis to rule out [that coronavirus is] a lab construct, but no basis to rule out a lab accident.”
According to a study from the South China University of Technology, the Wuhan Virus “probably” originated from the Centre for Disease Control. Curiously, shortly after this finding was published, the research paper was deleted from a social networking site for scientists and researchers.
A few days ago, Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government said it “did not recognize” claims the virus emerged from a Chinese laboratory.
Regardless of whether China purposely released the virus or not, the authoritarian country still poses a threat to American interests.
American policymakers will need to re-consider trade and immigration policies with the country.
