According to Buzzfeed News, Graham is now taking the next step in drafting legislation that would expand police powers to confiscate firearms.
These laws allow judges to seize an individual’s guns without due process just for being a perceived “threat”.
Despite providing little in terms of specifics, Graham claimed that he would be working on the bill’s content during the week of April 8, 2019.
Over the past year, states have led the way in passing gun control, with red flag laws being the flagship legislation gun controllers have rallied around.
With Lindsey Graham getting behind red flag gun confiscation, the federal government is likely going to embark on a significant push towards gun control. Graham’s bill would provide federal grants to states with red flag gun confiscation laws on the books.
The South Carolina Senator told Buzzfeed, “I’m seeking to incentivize states to produce extreme risk protective order legislation that has ample due process but also is meaningful in protecting the public from somebody who is dangerous.”
No Compromise gun rights organizations like Gun Owners of America have stood strong against Graham’s efforts to push red flag gun confiscation laws.
BLP reported on GOA Legislative Counsel Michael Hammond’s opposition to red flag gun confiscation orders.
In Hammond’s view the Graham-Blumenthal proposal would have pro-gun states subsidizing anti-gun states to carry out gun confiscation.
There are 14 such states. And except for Florida, which was cowed into gun confiscation by a near-riot of Parkland kids, and a 1999 Indiana statute, the remaining 13 states are the bluest, most anti-gun states in the country. Thus, S. 7 and S. 506 would be a massive transfer of an unspecified number of tax dollars from Republican pro-Second Amendment states — to states that are moving heaven and earth to destroy the Second Amendment.
Dudley Brown, the President of the National Association for Gun Rights, sees red flag laws as an invitation 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.
Despite warnings from pro-gun activists, the D.C. political class insists on pushing red flag laws forward.

President Trump: Best Pro-Life President Ever?
Karen Cross, the Political Director for National Right to Life, praised President Donald Trump for his pro-life efforts during his administration.
At Life News, she wrote “President Donald J. Trump and his Administration have established more pro-life policies than any other president in history.
The National Right to Life Committee endorsed president Trump’s re-election bid on July 4, 2019.
That day, Carol Tobias, the president of National Right to Life, said:
“As our nation celebrates Independence Day, we are proud to endorse the only presidential candidate who stands for the unalienable right to life. From his first day in office, President Trump and his Administration have been dedicated to advancing policies that protect the fundamental right to life for the unborn, the elderly, and the medically dependent and disabled.”
One of the Trump administration’s first actions as president was to restore the Mexico City Policy, which bars tax funds from going to organizations that carry out abortions or lobby to bring pro-abortion laws to host countries. Trump followed up by expanding this policy to keep $9 billion in foreign aid from being used to bankroll the global abortion industry.
The Trump Administration also slashed funding to the United Nations Population Fund due to that agency’s involvement with China’s forced abortion program.
President Trump originally pledged “to veto any legislation that weakens current pro-life federal policies and laws, or that encourages the destruction of innocent human life at any state.”
According to Cross, President Trump vowed to sign the following pro-life legislative items:
- The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act;
- The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act; and
- The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.
The National Right to Life Political Director emphasized the importance of the 2020 elections. She stated that this election “will determine who appoints justices to the U.S. Supreme Court and numerous federal judges to lower courts.”
Having Republican control of the Senate will allow Trump to continue to nominate conservative judges.
So far, Trump has nominated 192 federal judges, which include U.S. Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, who were ultimately confirmed by the U.S. Senate.
Having Nancy Pelosi out of the picture as House Speaker will allow for pro-life legislation to actually move out of the House.
All in all, pro-lifers’ best bet for any type of policy change will be for Republicans to gain control of all three branches of government.
