Marco Rubio Unveils ‘Bipartisan’ Red Flag Gun Confiscation Proposal

Published

on

Marco Rubio is warming up to the idea of bipartisan gun control.

In an article for The New York Times, Rubio called for the introduction of a bipartisan red-flag law.

Red flag laws give law enforcement the authority to confiscate firearms from an individual who is deemed to be a threat to themselves or others without any form of due process.

17 states currently have this law on the books.

On the first day of the current Congress, Rubio “reintroduced bipartisan legislation with Senators Susan Collins, Republican of Maine; Jack Reed, Democrat of Rhode Island; and Angus King, independent of Maine.”

Rubio believes that there is a “consensus around red-flag legislation developing in real time.” He praised “Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina, and Senator Richard Blumenthal, Democrat of Connecticut, who have publicly voiced support for enacting a law that would provide financial incentives to states to adopt red-flag laws.”

Although Rubio claims that this proposal does not “infringe on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding gun owners”, the devil is always in the details with gun control legislation.

For a start, a bill like this would have to go through the Democrat-controlled house, which will most certainly tack on anti-gun provisions into this bill, effectively neutering the original bill and turning into an anti-gun Trojan Horse.

Mainstream Republicans have still not learned their lesson.

Giving up an inch on the issue of gun control has made the Left more rabid in their calls for radical gun control.

By proposing a “common-sense” alternative for gun control, Republicans are shifting the Overton Window in favor of more civilian disarmament and are also giving House Democrats the chance to flex on the issue and sneak in anti-gun provisions into potential legislation.
