PRE-CRIME NATION: FBI Hotline Receives 70 Percent More Tips Due to Mass Shooting Hysteria

This is why red flag gun control is such a bad idea.

In the week following the mass shootings in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH earlier this month, Americans informed on their fellow citizens in record numbers for potential “red flag” behavior as they are gripped yet again by media-driven hysteria.

According to the FBI, there were 70 percent more calls to a tip line set up to prevent mass shootings in the week following the mass shootings and the subsequent wall-to-wall coverage from the fake news demonizing the 2nd Amendment. The FBI reportedly fielded over 38,000 phone and online tips from concerned individuals, as the police state kicks into high gear.

“Such increases are often observed after major incidents,” the FBI said in a statement. “As always, the FBI encourages the public to remain vigilant and report any and all suspicious activity to law enforcement immediately.”

This hysteria has already resulted in dozens pre-crime arrests, as children have been charged in several instances for making jokes online. Digital free speech, already under attack from Big Tech entities like Google and Facebook, is now being threatened by a network of citizen spies and overzealous federal law enforcement.

The worst abuse resulting from the hysteria thus far has happened to Brandon Wagshol, a 22-year-old resident of Connecticut. He was arrested earlier this month and had his firearms seized for merely posting a meme on social media:

22-year-old Connecticut resident Brandon Wagshol was arrested on Friday for posting a meme on social media that authorities claim indicated he showed an interest in committing a mass shooting…

He was arrested after law enforcement received an anonymous tip about the meme, which prompted the arrest of Wagshol as pre-crime becomes a reality as the Bill of Rights becomes a fading memory.

“What I understand is that he didn’t make any comments on Facebook, but there may have been other memes, as they call them, that he might have reposted,” said Darnell Crosland, who is representing Wagshol as his attorney.

In addition, Wagshol’s firearms were seized under Connecticut’s red flag law – in what will become the new status quo across the country if federal lawmakers get their way. The firearms found in Wagshol’s home were legal and registered to his father, but were taken anyway.

With the precedent already set allowing the revocation of individual rights based on digital freedom of expression, the notion of red flag gun control has never been more dangerous. One call to the authorities from a liberal family member could mean the permanent revocation of 2nd Amendment freedoms, if proponents like Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) are successful in their push to enact these laws federally.
