Lindsey Graham Confronted, Confused on Red Flag Laws

Published

on

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.

Baltimore’s Population Plummets as the City Becomes Dysfunctional

Published

on

ZeroHedge recently reported on the dire state of Baltimore.

The city’s population fell below 600,000, as it is rocked by “record homicides, an opioid crisis, and now an economic depression risks sending the city deeper into chaos.”

The Baltimore Sun, cited new U.S. Census data released on March 26, 2020, which estimated that Baltimore’s population was 593,490 as of July 2019.

ZeroHedge provided some context to Baltimore’s imploding demographics:

To give you some perspective on the collapsing population trend in Baltimore. In 1950, the city had 950,000 residents. Now it has 593,490, which is a loss of 356,510 people, or about 37.5% of the entire population in seven decades.

“White flight”, the crack epidemic of the 1980s/1990s, and a complete mismanagement of the city, have led to its notable decline. As a result, many have fled the city altogether or have gone to Baltimore County and other surrounding counties.

Michael Rendall, the director of the Maryland Population Research Center and a sociology professor at the University of Maryland, College Park, said in the aftermath 2015 Baltimore Riots, no other counties surrounding the city witnessed a decline in the population.

The city’s plunging population, Rendall stated, “is not a phenomenon reflective of the overall metropolitan area.”

During the last year, Baltimore City saw 8,953 people leave the city, which is 1.5 percent of its population.

Putting this in perspective, when Democratic Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was in office in 2014, the city had over 623,000 residents. In other words, the city has lost about 5% of its population in five years.

Ever since the riots, Baltimore’s economic growth has stagnated, homicides have been on the rise, and opioids have wreaked havoc on low-income neighborhoods. In 2019, Baltimore’s homicide rate

Given the shocking realities of its high crime, it’s shocking the city hasn’t even bothered to pass legislation that would help citizens arm themselves against the very real threat of criminals.

It also doesn’t help that the city has embraced many of the wacky criminal justice reforms which empower criminals, while law-abiding citizens are at the mercy of society’s most depraved.

Baltimore is Exhibit A of a failed city.
