Lindsey Graham Confronted, Confused on Red Flag Laws

Published

Georgia Gun Owners member Marjorie Taylor Greene is back at it again, this time confronting Senator Lindsey Graham on the topic of red flag laws.

On Twitter, Taylor Greene claims that Senator Graham won’t promote a red flag bill that violates due process rights after confronting him on the issue.

The South Carolina Senator re-assured her that he “owns guns too” and will not move a bill that violates due process.

Senator Graham said during a Tuesday hearing on the Senate’s red flag bill that “every right has its limits.”

In a move that surprised many pro-second amendment Texans who backed him, a bearded Ted Cruz conceded ground on the issue of red flag laws, stating that “I do think extreme risk laws, of the kind we’re discussing can potentially be part of the solution set.”

This confirms the fears of many no compromise gun organizations such as Gun Owners of America (GOA), who have sharply criticized Republican elected officials like Graham for his support of red flag bills.

GOA legislative counsel Michael Hammond pointed out that red flag bills like S.7 would have Republican, pro-Second Amendment states subsidizing rabidly, anti-gun states to enforce their gun confiscation laws.

In a news conference earlier this week, Dudley Brown, the president of the National Association for Gun Rights and South Carolina State Representative Jonathon Hill denounced Graham’s red flag bill.

Hill said that the bill Senator Marco Rubio and Senator Lindsey Graham are promoting “is a really, really terrible bill.”

The State Representative expanded on the bill’s potential for due process violations:

They don’t have to give any notice if someone has reported you as being mentally unstable or dangerous.

Hill added:

These reports are going to come from roommates, family members, exes, neighbors, political enemies — you name it.

Brown argued that once a “protective order” is served, law enforcement can arrive at a gun owner’s door without warning.

They can literally come to your house at 2 in the morning. Yes, they can knock on the door. Sometimes they don’t knock. Sometimes they use a battering ram to open the door.”

Red flag gun confiscation laws have caused widespread concern in the gun community. Since the Parkland shooting, a number of states have passed red flag laws and are becoming a hot button issue in legislatures across the country.

Red flag gun confiscation laws have become a pillar of recent control campaigns and are starting to receive bipartisan support.

White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward

Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.

Published

on

On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.

Dean Weingarten of Ammoland.com reported that the bill passed by a 66 to 31 margin.

Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:

The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.

Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well.  If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.

Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.

Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.

It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
