Matt Gaetz Warns that John Cornyn’s Gun Control Package Will be Used to Bribe States into Adopting Red Flag Laws

With gun control now heading to President Joe Biden’s desk, millions of Americans could witness for the first time in decades, wholesale reductions in their right to bear arms. 

Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz has been one of the most vocal opponents of the recently passed bipartisan gun control “framework.”

Before this abomination of a gun control package was passed, Gaetz warned about some of the unsettling features of this bill. Namely, how this bill is using “federal money to bribe states to enact red flag laws.”

AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News noted that Texas Senator John Cornyn was the point man for Gun Control Inc. and was “working on behalf Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell” to pass gun control in the Senate.

One of the most significant provisions featured in this legislation is a red flag gun confiscation order bribery scheme. This proposal would send “resources to states and tribes to create and administer laws that help ensure deadly weapons are kept out of the hands of individuals whom a court has determined to be a significant danger to themselves or others, consistent with state and federal due process and constitutional protections.”

Gaetz offered his take on the federal gun control scheme. He noted, “In Florida, we have a red flag law, which is not good. We should not have one.” He continued, “I wish we didn’t. … In our state, we had 8,000 utilizations of the red flag law. Under the Senate plan, maybe we would get more money if we used our red flag law more often.” 

The red flag law that Gaetz referred to here was the one that former Florida Governor Rick Scott signed into law in 2018.

Gaetz declared that this gun control bill is “literally using the federal government to bribe the states to deprive citizens of their Second Amendment rights.”

The Florida Congressman stated, “The greatest threat to the Second Amendment right now? Weak Senate Republicans who just want their name on something.”

Since he was first elected to Congress in 2016, Gaetz has rapidly emerged as one of the leading America First champions in the House. 

Gaetz can be counted on to defend the sacred rights of the Historic American Nation unlike the previous generation of Republican leaders who treat these liberties as mere bargaining chips. We need more of these people in Congress if we want to fully restore our freedoms.
