Kris Kobach Voices Strong Opposition to Red Flag Laws

Published

on

When Republicans left and right are falling for the Siren Song of red flag gun confiscation orders, one Republican is sticking to his principles.

The Republican is former Kansas Secretary of State and now 2020 Senate candidate Kris Kobach. Known for his staunch America First views on the border, Kobach has also made it clear to America’s gun owners that he is a fierce Second Amendment defender as well.

He is not having any part of the GOP’s current compromise on the issue of red flag laws.

Kobach told The Epoch Times that “red flag laws that have been passed at the state level deny due process in multiple ways to the targets of individual gun confiscation complaints.”

According to The Epoch Times report, these laws can be used by disgruntled former dating partners as a tool of vengeance against gun owners.
It notes the following:

Kobach said that under many existing red flag state laws, any person who has lived in a target’s house—including ex-girlfriends or boyfriends—can be considered a family member for purposes of lodging gun confiscation complaints.

For Kobach, “The standard of proof is very low. They have a hearing where they seize the person’s guns right away without even being told.”

He added, “The standard for disarming the individual is very low, it’s not a beyond reasonable doubt standard.”

Currently, there is no red flag legislation at the federal level, however over a dozen states have these laws on the books. Kobach said that these laws “are not good.”

The former Kansas Secretary of State hasn’t spoken to Trump on the issue of red flag laws, but he would very likely advise the president against enacting a federal red flag measure.

Since the Parkland shooting in 2018, Kobach has remained a strong opponent of red flag bills citing how they promote the “seizure of guns without any hearing at all” and shift the “burden of proof to the gun owner.”

GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis Follows Democrat Orders, Locks Down Florida After Media Pressure Campaign

Published

on

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis issued a statewide shelter order on Wednesday, April 1, 2020 in response to the Wuhan Virus pandemic.

“I’m going to be doing an executive order today directing all Floridians to limit movements and personal interactions outside the home to only those necessary,” he stated. “To obtain or provide essential services or conduct essential activities.”

DeSantis’s order will go into effect at 12:01 a.m. on Friday and will last for 30 days.

If any “essential service” was missed in the initial executive order, the governor says it can be tacked on.

DeSantis claimed he consulted with the White House and had a conversation with President Donald Trump about the decision. He noted that the White House Wuhan Virus task force’s extended guidelines from Tuesday night shaped DeSantis’ decision, describing the president’s move a “national pause.”

“We’re going to be in this for another 30 days,” he declared. “At this point, even though there’s a lot of places in Florida that have very low infection rates, it makes sense to make this move now.”

DeSantis has taken advantage of this situation by pushing forward infrastructure programs. The Florida governor ordered that $2.1 billion in transportation projects be accelerated. These projects include the Howard Frankland bridge project in Tampa Bay.

Sadly, it appears that the Florida Governor has capitulated to Democrat demands to shut down the entire state, even though the Democrat cities infested with the disease are already on lock down. Thirteen left-wing members of Congress led by Debbie Wasserman-Schultz lead a media campaign by signing a letter to the governor earlier this week calling for him to issue the order.

The Wuhan Virus saga demonstrates the unforeseen costs of globalization, where basic civil liberties have to be suspended due to the problems that globalist policies cause.

Mass migration and free trade come with lots of hidden costs and increase the likelihood of generalized crises like the Wuhan Virus pandemic to occur.
