Is Lindsey Graham pushing for gun confiscation?

After the El Paso Walmart massacre, which left 20 killed, the usual screams for gun control erupted on Twitter.

The Left was quick to demand gun control.

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, a Republican, is now renewing his push for red flag gun confiscation orders.

BLP has previously reported on Graham’s efforts to move this legislation in the Senate.

With another mass shooting and national uproar, Graham might get his wish after all.

On Twitter Graham declared, “El Paso shooting is sick and senseless. Time to do more than pray. Time to enact common-sense legislation in Congress to empower states to deal with those who present a danger to themselves and others — while respecting robust due process.”

 

 

He then added, “May not have mattered here, but Red Flag laws have proven to be effective in states that have them. (2/2)”

 

Red flag laws allow judges to confiscate an individual’s guns without due process just for being a perceived “threat”.

17 states have passed these laws so far.

Many gun rights activists fear that these laws could be a Trojan Horse for even larger infringements on gun rights.

Dudley Brown, the President of the National Association for Gun Rights, views red flag laws as an springboard  for potential law enforcement abuse:

They [Law enforcement] 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.

Interestingly, Connecticut was one of the first states in the nation to pass red flag laws in 1999. However, such a law could not prevent Adam Lanza from carrying out his slaughter at Sandy Hook in 2012.

BLP will keep a close eye on any new developments regarding red flag bills in Congress.

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting

They say they’re not changing their name.

Published

The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.

Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.

The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.

The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.

It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
