RINO Brian Babin Opened up a Pandora’s Box for Gun Control

Published

on

After the fallout from the El Paso and Dayton massacres, it appears that Republicans are starting to cave to anti-gun pressure.

Several elected officials such as Lindsey Graham are proposing legislation that would offer grants to states who implement red flag gun confiscation orders.

Freshman Congressman Dan Crenshaw echoed these sentiments, with him even suggesting that The Threat Assessment, Prevention, and Safety (TAPS) Act also be considered.

Both Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump also agree that red flag laws should be on the table to address the so-called “epidemic” of gun violence.

With 17 states already passing red flag laws and more hysteria building up from mass shootings, it seems that the federal government is about to do the unthinkable and pass expansive gun control.

This has not happened since the passage of the Brady Act in 1993, which created the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.

These latest capitulations by supposedly “pro-gun” Republicans show the growing acceptance of the “Minority Report” state.

Gun rights supporters have already sounded the alarms about the due processing destroying aspects of red flag laws. Even more insidious is the pre-crime nature of the TAPS Act.

The TAPS Act, which was introduced earlier by Texas Congressman Brian Babin, and then introduced in the Senate by Florida Senator Marco Rubio, would effectively expand the surveillance state and usher in a new era of pre-crime enforcement.

In a statement during his bill’s revelation, Babin declared that the TAPS act “Standardizes and provides a behavioral threat assessment and management process across the Federal government.  Provides states the training, resources, and support needed to stand up community-based, multi-disciplinary behavioral threat assessment and management units. Recognizes that behavioral threat assessment and management processes must become part of the culture and fabric of contemporary law enforcement.  Urges that this is a matter of national security – if we act now and work together, we can save lives.”

David Leach of The Strident Conservative argues that the Senate version of TAPS Act, S.265, would “encourage law enforcement to give EVERYONE a personal threat assessment (adults and children) and single out those they deem as future threats.” From there, this information could later be used to “stop dangerous individuals before they can commit an act of violence.”

Mark Angelides of Liberty Nation also commented on the implications of Babin’s statement and the legislation in question:

But what result would be measured as a success? If the individual has committed no crime, why should they have their privacy invaded and their life chances hindered with a government record deeming them to be “threat”? If the individual in question has committed a crime, then there are already laws in place to deal with them.

2018 already witnessed Florida, one of the most pro-gun states in the nation, fold to gun control pressure when all branches of its Republican legislature banned bump stocks, raised the age to buy an AR-15, and implemented “red flag” laws.

Now with wall-to-coverage of mass shootings and a Republican establishment that is growing softer by the day, “red flag” and TAPS legislation could be coming down the pipe.

Dark days lie ahead for those who believe in basic civil liberties and the Second Amendment.

The fighter himself commented on this news, declaring “The anti communism bus tour will be arriving at a city near you #supernecessary.”

 

Masvidal, whose parents are Cuban and Peruvian, has been an outspoken Trump supporter.

Unlike other sports leagues, the UFC has uniquely positioned itself by not adopting the woke antics of leagues such as the NFL and NBA.

Masvidal is a veteran of MMA promotions such as Strikeforce, Bellator, and the UFC. He is currently fighting under the UFC banner and holds a record of 35-14. According to MMA website Sherdog, he is currently ranked in 4th place . Similarly, he is ranked in 4th place according to the UFC’s rankings.

The Welterweight fighter currently owns the record for the fastest knockout in UFC history, after he knocked out Ben Askren with a flying knee five seconds into the first round. Additionally, Masvidal won the “BMF” championship against Nate Diaz in 2019 after he battered Diaz and forced a technical knockout via doctor stoppage.

Masvidal fought current welterweight champion Kamaru Usman on less than a week’s notice for the UFC Welterweight Championship at UFC 251, after he replaced the original challenger Gilbert Burns, who tested positive for the Wuhan virus. Before the fight took place, Masvidal signed a multi-fight contract with the UFC. Masvidal ended up losing the fight via unanimous decision.

Nevertheless, the card reportedly netted 1.3 million pay-per-view buys in America.
